Can you set the files back to being opened with Sony Vegas, or did you already try that?

Lemme try, once again i'll edit this reply if it works or not.'


EDIT:Nope didn't work.. I guess they weren't originally for sony vegas. When I set it to sony vegas. Windows media player still doesn't open. I feel like the .sfk is a slight reason why WMP isn't working. I really want WMP to work, and I just ASSUME this is the reason..

Okay, let me ask you something, I am trying out this admin program on these very forums that says it puts the properties back to default. I did that, and now its default is iTunes O-o But, there is a "Delete this file type" option.. That apparently erases my .sfk's completely, the entire assosciation with that file.. But you see, my .sfk's were never visible until I got "Sony vegas 7" so.. Would this be a safe choice?

It should be a safe choice. The .sfk files are used by Sony Vegas, so Sony Vegas will still know where to find them and how to use them even if Windows does not know they are used by Sony Vegas anymore.

Also, one thing I neglected to mention: you could try a system restore to before you changed the default file choice. System Restore and pay close attention to the NOTE: in step 8. of OPTION ONE.

Yeah, but about the System Restore. I don't have a restore point before I made my stupid properties change... I'm just gonna go for it and delete my .sfk's

What the bloody hell!? It worked! The .sfk's are back to normal!! ...But yet another problem. It turns out, this wasn't ever the problem. My Windows media player is the damn problem!!! Let me tell you the story, when I made the change with the .sfk files, at first. MY WMP said "Server execution failed" BUT I fixed it. And my WMP worked! The day after that, I tried to use WMP and it just opens for a mili-second and closes. So the problem wasn't my .sfk's, it was my WMP itself! :O

Just in case someone else stumbles across this thread and has similar problems, is this the tutorial you are using: File Extension Type - Unassociate ?

I see nothing to indicate the Windows Media Player issue. You had a number of errors with Event ID 4107. You can resolve those through Event ID 4107 or Event ID 11 is logged in the Application log in Windows and in Windows Server

Also, see if the problem with Windows Media Player is due to a startup program or service conflict. Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Like always, it didn't resolve the problem. But I found within the Windows Media Player folder within my program files. A install .exe, but there is no way to uninstall WMP through the control panel. Should I manually DELETE WMP? And try this? Because, if this doesn't work, it won't get any worse.. It's already not working.
