In HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\currentVersion\Explorer\FileExts, you have for example .bmp\UserChoice (ProgId=XnView.*)
Remove the UserChoice key

I want do install and uninstall unattend batch script, but I have troubles with restore association after uninstall. I can "manually" associate throught registry after install, but after uninstall isnt restored previous association. this two things are already programed in main app, so is it possible do switches for xnview.exe for this functions (one for association with list of wanted extensions and one for restore association)?
