Itunes help - Not default player everytime i boot pc

Everytime i reboot my pc and run itunes i get the message that it's not the default player and so it gives me the option to make it my default player, which i do.

But as soon as the pc is turned off and then on again i get this message.

Anyone know what's causing it?

autostart?

I've never had the problem but if you used something like revo uninstaller and uninstalled all music player programs and then reinstall itunes the problem should go away?

When it pops up does it not have an option to "Don't show this message again." Whenever I update I-Tunes it tells me the same thing but if you just tick the box it should go away.

Ok try this

1. Open i-Tunes
2. Click "Edit" the select "Preferences"
3. From the tabs click "Advanced"
4.About half way down is a tick box marked "Warn me if I-Tunes is not the default player for audio files"
5. Make sure this box is un-ticked.
6. Close the dialogue box and your preference will be saved.

This should fix it.

Yeah both options will make it go away but I want iTunes to be the default player

Same problem for me

If you click start, type "msconfig" and press enter. Click the startup tab and see if itunes is enabled at startup?

Autostart has absolutely nothing to do with this.


thats what i was thinking...
#18
You tried going to Programs > Default Programs in the control panel and setting it there (and deselecting WMP as appropriate?)

One of PC's does this, not sure why it is the default for it all and it saves the settings, I've not played with it much as it's only my mum who uses it, I just told iTunes to not check, as I don't know if this is the same for you but mine is the default but I just get the notification.
Do the settings reset each time aswell?


yeah it all reset's and i have to select which files to have as default for itunes every time i boot the pc
