    in my advice , windows media player is the suck and there really is no point in fixing it, here is a link the awesomest player ever invented, it easily plays any media as long as you install the codecs, which shouldnt be too hard cuz there are manuals on the site

    Thats easy !

    When you install your new player it may ask you after teh install which types of files yoou want it to own. If it doesn't just go to "preferences" and set the files you want it to play from there! I have WMP 10 and I click OPTIONS then the FILE TYPE tab and select the file associations in the tic boxes.
