maybe there is an interference with irfanview which is connected to all files?

sorry i did not tell you: 1. i have winme 2. i have told irfanview to use any extensions.
3. somebody told me using only graphics ext. in irfanview, although its has now fanstastic multimedia capabilities with its plugins.
4. i should resintall without deinstalling wmplayer. i have never done such a single windows-program-install. if i use software then it will be deinstalled. how can i handle this?
