    I would like the wm11 player to open autmatically when dowloading a .wma file
    form the web. On my permium version of Vista it WILL open autmatically
    buffer and then start stremin while the rest of the content downloads.
    On my office computer wm11 will not open until the whole file is downloaded.
    Finally, to make it all crazy, .wmv open and play perfectly from the web.
    Why is wm11 not opening and palying these file types autmatuically and how
    can I change this setting.

    If you go to the Default Programs menu option and then go to Set Program
    Access and Defaults, does setting the default back to Windows Media Player
    fix this up?

    This should mean that some application badly hijacked the .WMA association.
    (Proper take-over would cause it to launch them, bad take-over would cause
    behavior like this. I support good association code.)
