I have used iTunes for managing my music for my iPod and it works great; however, I still prefer to use Windows Media Player for all my other comms apps. My problems is that I receive my voicemail messages as .wav files from Vonage, which I prefer to listen to on Windows Media Player (WMP). However, everytime I use iTunes, iTunes overrides my WMP settings and makes itself the default player for .wav files. Each time, I have to go back into WMP and manually reset WMP to be the default for .wav files. How can I prevent iTunes from overriding WMP?

Since iTunes is fighting for control, you have to go into iTunes. Once in iTunes, click on the Edit menu, and then Preferences. Make sure "Use iTunes as the default player for audio files" is unchecked. Then it will won't steal the file associations each time you use iTunes. Thanks for your question. skermit-ga
