Applian has altered all my music files

To watch a couple of .FLV files, I downloaded the latest version of the player which turns out to be Applian. Very nice. But now I find that all music files have been altered so that the type is Applian Media File with .wav or .mp3 in brackets. I have deleted Applian but the type remains. Is there a way I can remove Applian from the type to leave it as .wav or .mp3 as it was before.
There are literally 100's of files. When I converted some .wav to .mp3 using Switch, the same Applian type appeared even though the program has been deleted. So presumably Applian has changed something basic.

The songs already open with Windows Media PLayer which is OK. It is the text in the file type that I want to change. Thus we have a typical entry in Explorer:

Fiste there is an icon that looks like the right pointing arrow in WMP but it is enclosed in what looks like earphones. Then we have the song title that hasn't changed. Then in "type" we have "Applian Media File (.mp3) The rest of the deatils are not changed.

What I want to do is get rid of the "Applian Media File" and leave just the mp3 as it used to be

Woolwell When I select open with, I don't get a default option - it just opens it.

I'm not sure what I did because the description in the help file and what was displayed did not match. However, I have got rid of the applian bit.

Thanks Woolwell
