Alright im trying to download some video so i click on the link and everytime i click an MPG file it opens it with Quicktime. I even go to the My Computer > Tools > Options and look at File Extentions and it says that the default player is Windows Media Player. Al other ones like WMV MPEG AVI AND ASX and stuff all open with WMP. Can someone help me out please thanks.

Go into the preferences for Quicktime and unassociate that file type with the player.

Well Quicktime associations says that it isn't associated with anything besides Macintosh files. I dunno...

What browser?

What happens if you double click an mpg on your local drive?

Well, an MPG on my HD is run with WMP but if i open thru internet explorer, it uses Quicktime.

Don't know if this'll work:

Look for the MPG link

Might want to backup the registry first ;)

Alternatively, load WMP, go to the options, file associations tab, uncheck mpg, save it/close, go back, check it, save it/close.

If it is only doing it in IE, then one your quicktime plugin is grabbing it before the wmp is getting to it. If you reinstall wmp or just try changing in the file associations via wmp, it should work.
