Something a bit strange started happening on my computer. Normally I simply double-clicked on a video file to run it in Windows Media Player but now I have to right-click and then choose Open With to run it. This happens with mpegs, avis, wmvs and I assume all other video files. I know this is a fairly minor fault but I'd like to know what made this happen and how to resolve it. Thanks

mine does the same thing from time to time. I think it is something with windows media because when I open the files with other programs it works fine. Try opening the same movies with real player and see if you have the same problem with it.

I can open the files using other programs but I was wondering what had happened to cause this.
