I'm trying to help a neighbor with her computer.
She has the $15 version of DSL Yahoo/Verizon.
What a pain in the neck that is. I've gotten most of
the unwanted junk out of there but can't seem to
get Windows Media Player as the default player.
If I go to tools>options>file types and check all
boxes...shouldn't that do it?

Thanks, but when I try to upload music, I can't get it
to Windows Media Player.....Now I think if I upload them
to "My Music" folder, I can select which player to use.
I'll let you know later... :thumbsup:

Follow these steps to see if you can make WMP default:

Go to Start > Set Program Access & Defaults, click the double arrow to the right of Custom to expand the list if needed; under Choose Default Media Player & select Windows media Player.

At the shop I work at the recommendation is:

1) Uninstall all the AT&T/Yahoo cr*p
2) Call AT&T and tell them that you want to do a manual install of the DSL connection.

Works like a charm, thank you.

If it were my computer, I would do as usasma suggested, but
it isn't and she's happy with the way it works now. I will remember
that though, should another occurence like what she had occurs again
