I was given an ipod nano to load songs for jogging and loaded 220.127.116.11 itunes to manage the device on my Dell XPS with Windows 10 Home edition. I also have Win Patrol which now alerts me every 5 minutes that something has changed my mp3 default setting to itunes from Groove Music. I went into preferences for itunes and made sure there was no check by "notify me if itunes is not my default player". Having said, that, that is NOT the message I receive. Something has changed my default and Win Patrol asks me if it is all right. I say no. The message repeats.
I went into service.msc and turned the ipod program to manual and stopped it. Did not help.
I went into Settings on Windows and clicked Grove for my default app and restarted my computer, nothing.
First, what is changing my default app? I assume it's itunes as I never had this issue before downloading it.
Second, is there a way to stop this insanity without removing itunes?
Thanks for any help.
