    VLC media player opens automatically whenever running any software or double clicking any files on Windows XP

    Hi, whenever I run any software on my pc it automatically opens the VLC media player and it fails because it canít open such shortcuts. And also whenever I try to open any files, the file is being opening through VLC media player. Although many files are not related to video or audio, still the VLC media player tries to open through it, and most times it fails, as it canít run such files. I tried many things yet I couldnít find any solution to fix it. Please help me find a way to fix it. Thanks.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say..........................

    1.This can be the problem of the default program.

    2.For every software and every file VLC Player may be made as the default program.

    3.So you try to change the default program and then try to open the files.

    4.If that is not your problem then this can be the problem of the VLC Player.

    5.So you uninstall it and then install it again.

    6.If still you have the problem then format is the only procedure to fix this problem.

    Have a nice day..................................
