How can I remove a file type association for .lnk files?

I have read the ‘How to fix .lnk file associations‘ question. I have the issue, but none of the answers actually say ‘associate program XYZ’ with the .lnk file type.

I think my issue is that there is an entry in the file association table, so every ‘shortcut’ wants to open with the associated program. How do I remove the .lnk entry so that Windows 7 will run the program the shortcut points to?
