Why does my media player open up when I try to play a sound in a web page? How do I stop it from doing this?

What kind of files are you trying to play? Something's got to fire up to play them and it looks like your Windows Media Player is currently set up to be the default player for that type of file.

To change that, open Media Player's Options (under Tools in Media Player) and go to the File Types tab. Remove the check from any or all of the files types you want to play with different program, click OK.

Then in the program you'd rather use, find its Options or Preferences and make sure those files types are included in the list of files you want it to play by default.
