Winamp icons and default program


Recently all my Winamp mp3's (Winamp as default player) just changed to Windows Media Player, which I detest.

No matter what I do I cannot change the default play program for these MP3's back to Winamp.

I have tried in Default Programs and it will not select Winamp when I check it. I have tried all I can think of and nowhere will the system let me change this back to Winamp as the default player.

WHY? I am still using a version 7 platform as upgraded etc.

Will it let you change the default program if you right click on a File and select Properties>General>Change

Sounds like a permissions issue to me make sure your User account control is at its lowest setting.

Right-click on the winamp icon and then chose Run as Admin.
Set the filetypes you want in Winamp prefs, and close the prefs window to save your settings

Mashups ? Smells like a lot of "Fishy Business" to me.

You can also uninstall all players and then try to install them from scratch- leaving for the end that one which you want to be associated with the given audio / video formats
