For all versions of qBt, on Windows 7 x64 and likely others.

When qBittorrent finds an update, it prompts the user to download it. When the downloaded installer is started, it detects the existing installation and states that this will be uninstalled without deleting the existing settings. However, the file associations presented in the installation options always set qBittorrent to be the default handler for magnet links and .torrent files.

I feel that these options should reflect the pre-existing associations, especially since the dialog implies that the user's previous choices will be retained - regardless if they are represented in the actual qBt settings or in the OS' registry.
