Hey all, I' running windows 7 and i have encountered a problem. Everytime i try to open a media file (mp3, mpeg, avi, wmv, etc) from windows explorer it prompts me what program to use to open it. I can select WMP and tick the "Always use this program for this type of file" but it will keep asking me. Ive changed the settings in the Default Programs, and in the Registry and it still won't do it.

By the way, I'm running WMP 11, it worked fine when i was on 12

If it worked fine with WMP 12, why did you go back to WMP 11?
