I have a HP desktop with Windows 7
I either listen to an audio book or music when I am on the pc.
Yesterday I tried to listen to a song and when I clicked on the mp3 icon or little square (sorry my pc language needs help) instead of playing it went into my email program (Incredimail) and put itself on a new letter to be mailed!!
I haven't changed anything in settings etc and I can't figure out how to fix it.
Googling for an answer hasn't helped and neither has microsoft windows 7 helped.
Thank you for reading and I will thank you again when you help me.

try right clicking on an MP3 file and a menu will appear and on that
menu it should say OPEN WITH. If you go to that section it should list your

media players. Select the one you usually use and see if that opens up your

MP£ and plays normally. If it does, then repeat the above but instead of

selecting your media player, go to the bottom of the menu and select CHOOSE

DEFAULT PLAYER. That will open up another box and you can select which

programme you want to associate MP£'s with. Make sure the little box at the

bottom is checked that says ALWAYS USE THIS PROGRAMME FOR THIS FILE TYPE (

or words to that effect)
