Windows XP Pro SP2.

After installing Visual Studio .NET 2003 Service Pack 1, my .vbs file
association has changed.  Double-clicking a .vbs VBScript file now opens the
file in Microsoft Development Environment (the VS editor).

I changed the file association in Windows Explorer to Microsoft Console
Based Script Host (one of the recommended programs), however now
double-clicking the .vbs file causes a command window to quickly flash open
and close and the script is not executed.  Right-clicking the file reveals
that the default action (in bold) is now Open with Command Prompt.

How do I change the file association for .vbs files back to what it was?
I.e. double-clicking the .vbs file runs the script.

This is the second problem with file associations caused by SP1.

thanks,
