I recently installed iTunes for Windows. Great program. The first time I ran it it asked me if I wanted to associate MP3s et al with iTunes. I said yes. Went into my MP3 directory - all the icons are now iTunes icons. Played a track. Went back into the directory to play another track and whaddya know - they’ve all changed back to RealPlayer icons. So I manually changed the filetype association back to iTunes, played another track, and, naughty naughty RealPlayer, it’s kidnapped my filetype again. Grrrr.
So, first, how does it do it? RealPlayer isn’t running, it’s not running as a systray agent, nor as a background process - I checked with TaskManager. I’m guessing something in the registry.
Secondly, how can I stop this highly irritating behaviour?
Help me make RealPlayer my bitch.
