When you enter a FTP command such as "FTP ftp.regedit.com" IE 4.0 launches instead of the DOS based FTP program.
To disable this behaviour, use Regedit to find the key below, and delete the value of "ftp".
To re-enable, create a REG_SZ value of "ftp" and set the data to "ftp://".

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\URL\Prefixes]
