Believe it or not, there’s a common yet useless dialog in Windows XP:

I’ve never seen it work, and I don’t know anyone who has. If you want to get rid of this annoyance, a quick and easy registry hack exists to make your life easier. Using regedit or your favorite registry editor, navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Create a new DWORD value, name it NoInternetOpenWith, and make its value 1. Done, no reboot necessary!
