changing .js extension default editor (win7)

I used the ShellMenuView utility to find the registry keys associated with the .js extension and changed this key:

from a path to notepad.exe to the notepad++.exe path.

For some reason though the edit context menu still opens with notepad. I did the same thing for .bat files and it worked fine. Is there another key that could be overriding it?
