Everything I try to download the default settings for the file type: iTunes Music Player

I've recently updated my laptop and Vista for the first time.  I now have difficulties to download zip files of emails and sites such as magnatune.com.  When I choose to save, he saves as file "iTunes Music Player" type and creates a copy of my iTunes library.  The file is marked however I save it, but when I try to open it, it's my library iTunes rather than any other file, I tried to download.

Can anyone help?  Please forgive me in advance for NOT being very computer savvy... have patience!
Thank you!


Hello world.

Simplest of them would follow these steps:
  1. Click Start > default programs
  2. Click "Set your default programs"
  3. list programs, click on 'Windows Media Player '.
  4. Click set this program as default
This should prevent itunes from launching automatically when you open the zip file. However, I use itunes to version 8.1 of one year, but again, I don't have this problem. I suggest that you need to update your itunes.
If the problem persists, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start > default of programs
  2. Click "associate any type of file or Protocol with a program.
  3. Scroll to the bottom for. Zip
  4. click it and then click on "Program Change"
  5. In the list that appears, select WinZip or WinRAR. If they are not displayed, then click on the drop down arrow besides "other programs." If it still does not her you must install winRAR or WinZIP.
  6. If WinZIP or WinRAR appeared, then click Ok and click Ok.
  7. If it is not then go to google, search for WinZIP or WinRAR and download the latest version.
What should probably solve all your queries.

    Method 1

    Check if Add-ons installed on the Internet explore is the origin of the problem. I suggest that you try to open Internet explorer without modules and check if the problem persists.

    (b) click System Tools, click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

    How the modules of the browser affect my computer?


    Method 2

  • [Solved] When you change the file type for RAR files, it also changes the file type of the ISO XP files

    I tried to change the file type description, as well as in default and the icon for the rar and iso programs file types inmenu\ tools\folder options\file typest\advanced, but to change the settings on a file type automatically changes settings on the other.

    2. how exactly you try this?

  • Can someone tell me the default settings for the internal speakers (Realtek HD Audio Manager) on HP G62 454TU laptop pls?

    I had problems with IE11 and Outlook, both kept gel (not answer) more and more each day.  Outlook is still difficult sign in, I have to sign at least two times and once I got to sign on 7 times.  The drafting of emails, I'd get msg "cannot connect to Outlook - try again later. IE11 is also unstable permanently "unresponsive" my sound stopped working also and I found that he lacked Realtek HD Audio Manager.  It took nearly a week trying to figure out how to reinstall.  (I am 60 years old and not informed techno) Finally, I downloaded and installed (with no help from HP) but speakers still does not.  I approached then Microsoft Help Desk who suggested that reset IE11.  I did it yesterday and now all seems ok with IE11 and Outlook but I have still no sound.   Where to find the default settings for programs that use audio ie itunes, youtube, etc?

    I have only a couple of theories left to isolate the problem, but have no idea how to go on this issue.

    1. I received a msg when I lit the notebook from HP saying storage battery was low and the battery can be replaced.  I've never used this notebook on sector so I ignored msg but with freezes and random low cut that I removed the battery which seems to solve that problem, but I wonder if firm random downs could have damaged files, software or anything.

    2. Windows updates put things here that seem to be more for Windows 8 for example. Touch screen program.   Can we update caused problems for the sound on my laptop?

    I have run virus/malware programs with no threat found.  I also installed Glary to find and fix registry problems, but still no sound.

    Can someone help me please?
