It's easy enough to just  stop .ddb , .sch, .prj, .pcb and whatever 
else you're likely to double click on being associated with Protel. 
Fire up regedt32 (from task manager, if you can't find it 
elsewhere), then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE, 
Classes, and delete (click on, then hit 'DEL') .ddb and all the 
others you fancy killing off. That'll stop them launching Protel when 
you double-click, but Protel will still be entirely happy to open 
them. job done, without all this messing about with application 
launcher, counting copies, and the like. The icons may no longer 
be as pretty in file manager. Tough.
