    Why do you need to make it unknown? Can't you right click on it and
    choose "open with" to select a new application to open it?

    Oh well, to remove a file type's association do this:

    Open any folder, go to Tools on the menu, then Folder Options at the
    bottom. Select the File Types tab and find the type of file you want to
    make "unknown". Use the delete button and that file type will not be
    associated with any particular program. If you dbl-click on that type of
    file Windows should ask how you want to open it again.
