Greetings and Thanks in advance!
Suddenly, when ever I double click on a file (Particulary .Mp3 Files) I am prompted to chose a program for the execution.
I check the box: "Always use the selected program to pen this kind of file", but it doesn't stick.

Try another method.
Open up My Computer from your desktop.
Next click on TOOLS/Folder Options.

File types tab.
When the list populates, scroll down and find the file extension.

Highlight the extension then look in the section Details for (whatever) extension.
That will show you what program is set to open it.
If you need/want to change it, highlight the extension name, choose CHANGE.

Choose what program you want to associate with that extension, make sure Always use the selected program to open this kind of file is checked, hit OK.

It may or may not work, since you've done this when the prompt opens.

Hello Jack. I am glad it worked for you.
There is usually a way to get in through the window if you can't get in through the door.
The bonus is that you've learned something new, that if needed you can share with others.
