Default File Formats in Office 2007

Does anyone else hate that when you install Office 2007 it defaults to the new format in all the programs? This small registry fix will set the defaults to Office 2003 compatible files so users on older versions of office, office alternatives and other operating systems can view your files.

This registry will change the defaults for the following programs:
Microsoft Access 2007
Microsoft Excel 2007
Microsoft Powerpoint 2007
Microsoft Word 2007

Be sure none of them are running when you run the registry file or the default format for the app you have running won't be changed.
