I installed my new Radeon and it changed all my mpg files to their ATI viewer. I changed it back to Windows Media player but it's now the little director looking thing. How do I
change it to that green "default" icon? Thanks

In a windows explorer window, select Tools>Folder Options to bring up the folder options dialog. Click the file types tab, find and select the file extension you wish to modify, then click the "advanced" button. That should bring up another dialog that will allow you to specify the icon for that file type.
