I guess saying that this is because Windows sucks doesn't really help you, does it?

As a fellow Windows sufferer, I strongly suggest you open your Control Panel, search for Default Programs (I can never find anything in their GUI icon layout), click Associate a File Type or Protocol with a specific program, select .php from the list, and then browse for your latest NetBeans installation.
Note that you will have to repeat this every time you update NetBeans.
You have probably confused Windows by deleting the default php editor (C:\Program Files\NetBeans 6.9.1\bin\netbeans.exe) and then trying to get it to use a program with the same filename but a different path.

I just removed Netbeans 6.9.1 and installed the latest Netbeans 7.1 (I tried 
both a full install and the smaller php-only install).

In 6.9 I set Netbeans as the default editor for php files. All files with the 
extension .php will by default be opened in Netbeans.

In Netbeans 7.1 I cannot get this to work.

What I know and also tried:
Right-mouse on a .php file open with... Look for the Netbeans IDE (C:\Program 
Files\Netbeans 7.1\bin\netbeans.exe), select, click open and next it doesn't 
appear in my list with programs. Is there another way to do this or do I need 
to select a parameter somewhere?

I tried this on windows 7(desktop) and windows vista(notebook), both 
previously worked with version 6.9
