I am so sick of greedy software!
Whenever you download an upgrade to certain pieces of software (or if it is automatically done "for" you), greedy software invariably decides that it must become the default program for opening all of the file types it knows how to open.
So it changes the settings in File Types in My Computer or Windows Explorer. The result is that the wrong application opens the file the next time I double click on it.
This used to be an infrequent problem, but now I am experiencing it several times a month.
Last week, I upgraded to the latest Netscape, and suddenly Netscape is opening programs which I wanted other software to open. Now today, Quick Time is suddenly opening every graphics or sound file, and I didn't even do anything with it. And Winamp has suddenly installed itself in my system tray.
Do we need sledgehammers to pound some sense into the heads of the greedy programmers who wrote this greedy software???? If not, how do we tell them to LEAVE OUR SETTINGS ALONE!
