Do not edit the registry. Simply right-click *any* .bmp file, click
"Open with," choose Paint, and be sure to check the box "Always use
this program..."

It shouldn't take as much as a minute on each of the computers. Even
allowing for walking from computer to computer, its probably no more
than and hour and a half or so in total.

If I were you, I would put any .bmp file on a thumb drive or CD, then
take it to each of the 80 computers and do what I said below 80 times.
It's likely to be much faster than the time you would spend looking
for another way, trying it, finding out that it didn't work the way
you thought it would, fixing the problems that resulted, etc.

LOL! 5:43 on your time zone, but not mine. So, I can tell that you are

80 machines so you must have a domain? Push it in a logon or startup
script. You're not going to tell me that the machines are all stand
alones or that they are loosely arranged in a workgroup?
