    I freakin' hate QT. Everytime I installed it, it would become the default for a bunch of plug-ins like WAV. Then everytime I clicked a wav file the stupid thing would bring up a new page and load it in the middle with a nice little bar. How dumb is that?

    You can set which associations it will take over.... Just uninstall and reinstall it.

    Custom install QuickTime, baby! Works EveryTime, ;) ... or you can do this in QuickTime:

    [*]Edit

    [*]Preferences

    [*]QuickTime Preferences...

    [*](drop down list) choose File Type Associations

    [*]uncheck those 3 checkboxes.

    Alternatively, you can go to your MusicMatch's General settings and put a check on the Windows Media Files checkbox... or you can re-associate media file types with Windows Media Player:

    [*]View

    [*]Options...

    [*]Formats tab

    [*]and check the ones you want.

    Then, there file type association with Winamp:

    [*]Options

    [*]Preferences... (or Ctrl+P for short)

    [*]Setup --> File types

    [*]select the file types to override QuickTime's evil doings :)

    Finally, there is editing your registries under Folder Options or with a registry editor itself (e.g., Windows' very own Registry Editor).

    You can use RAD Video Tools to convert it to another format (e.g., AVI or MPEG-1) so you can view it with a preferred media player that is not QuickTime ;)
