    If you're using XP, right click on one of the files, then click Open With>Choose Program.... a list will appear of apps you can choose. Highlight Windows Media Player and then PUT a check mark in the spot that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file". Now hit okay.

    You should have reset the default.

    If you installed Winamp after WMP then it will do that since the newest WAMP has video capability. You can simply change it back in the Options / Preference menu in WMP.
