    Hi there


    A couple of days ago I opened a program for stamp collectors call STAMP ALBUM. Since then everything opens with Windows Media Centre plus WMC automatically pops up every so often.


    I have tried various ways of rectifying the problem but I have other associated problems such as:- 1. I can't open programs from the internet that may help. 2. I can't open the Samsung Recovery 5 program. 3. None of the icons has the "open with" facility. 4. The Default Program facility does not allow me to make changes to my laptop.


    Every time I try #'s 1,2 and 4 it immediately goes to WMC


    Can you help me please


    Eddie

    Please post a link to the Stamp Album program so I know which of many "stamp album" type programs you've installed.

    Hiya PLODR


    The Stamp Album software I downloaded is www.stampalbumstudio.nl/en/but I deleted it once I started getting the problems.


    Thanx for your reply

    Try THIS fix.

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

    Restart the computer.

    If the fix only opens as a text file (in Notepad), right-click the file (before opening it) and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

    I see the software is a trial version from 2007 and the site hasn't been updated since 2010. That would be two warning signs for me. (I am a stamp collector). Before I download old software, I try to find requirements and look for reviews. If I find little or nothing, I skip the program.
