Unfortunately TexWorks is now associated with the .tex file extension and I cannot revert it. If I change the file association to TeXnicCentre it simply reverts back to TexWorks. Please can someone tell me how to permanently change the file association?

TeXworks itself doesn't touch this; I guess it must be done by the MikTeX installer.

So I'd recommend looking for help from a MikTeX list/forum/developer/something....
