Media player prob after running CCleaner

  gazmix 19:14 04 Feb 2007

I have WMP classic as it is my favourite & is basic.
I run CCleaner the other day & now when i download an mpeg or wmv file, it opens with a different more up to date version of WMP.

How do i make all my WMV & MPEG's open with the WMP Classic that i have.
Stuff i have in my documents open with Classic, but when i try & download files, they open with the other version!
Any help appreciated

Try in control panel/add and remove/set program access and defaults/MS windows/look for wmp classic and set as default.

Hi Skidzy
I clicked on set programme access & defaults .
Custom is checked.
I see that on 'choose a default media player', it says:-
use my current media player &
windows media player

The 'use my current media player' is checked
& also 'enable access to this programme' is this right?

There is nothing about my 'classic' one that i have a shortcut to on my desktop.

When i click on Microsoft Windows there are 2 boxes
non microsoft & custom which should i check.
Use my current media player or WMP.

Does it not give you an option to choose the program by looking, it should and then you just look for media player classic. I use ccleaner all the time and use media player classic myself and it has never changed it.
Other option, download it again and install it and make it the default player.

There should be 2 settings,use windows media player or my current default player.As you are using media player classic...i suspect windows is getting a little confused over the two.Select my default player,but im guessing it will just return wmp.

If this does not work,follow
Totally-braindead's suggestion of download again and set as default.

Also check all settings within ccleaner,possibly under applications/multimedia.

I cannot see how though ccleaner has changed your default player gaz

I can't see anything about 'looking'
When i look at the list of programmes, there is no WMP at all.
It says
Microsoft windows
Non microsoft

When i go to custom, i see 2 options
Use current WMP &

Also when i go to 'start' & programmes, WMp has appeared & when i open it, it's not the classiC

I just want the classic one & not the more modern one

If selecting non ms do you get the option to change default player ?

Also now when i get a reply notification via mailwasher & click on the link that redirects me back here, it now opens with Internet Explorer & not the normal browser i use Firefox!
Something strange has happened!
Like my defaults have changed!

  gazmix 20:24 04 Feb 2007

No Skidzy, only when i go to Custom.
When i click now on instant email notification link, another Window opens & is IE not Firefox.
Somethings gone wrong somewhere!

Hi, perhaps a System Restore back to before you ran CC.

  skidzy 20:31 04 Feb 2007

System restore !!!!!!

If you ran ccleaner under issues,this would have asked to make a backup...normally stored in My Docs unless you have another path setup.I suggest if this is what you done,is to restore the backup.

Under mpclassic and view and options,tick the box use the same player for each media file and ok.

Looks like you have reset all your defaults....system restore gaz
