Suggestion to Dylan Bennett / Chimera 1.8rc 64-bit as Default Application

Hi Dylan,

you asked how to get Windows 7 to acknowledge Chimera as the default 
program to open specific files.
In my experience the same problem was solved by running Ccleaner up to 3 
times in a row to fix registry keys.
After the first run, re-scanning the registry with Ccleaner shows that 
.pdb entries still need to be fixed.
I kept running Ccleaner on my computer's registry until it was deemed as 
clean and only then was file association successful.
Hope this helps,
