    I had to reinstall quicktime player a few weeks ago and when I did something happened and know whenever I I click a direct link to an mpeg movie or mp3 file on the net it opens a new page and plays it in that. How do I fix this so WMP comes up an dplays the file.

    Go to the settings in WMP and make it the default player for those files.

    You have to change the settings in two places, for some strange reason. You have to tell Windows Media Player to open whatever file types you want it to open, and you have to go find some of those files on your hard drive and tell Windows to use WMP to open them. It's kinda back asswards.
