W7 Default Settings

Hello,

Some how I managed to change my default that my Windows Media Center keeps opening up instead of what it should be.

Examples: start window - internet Explorer - I get my windows media instead.

When I go into start - Default program - Set program access and computer defaults. When I try to access it my windows media player pops up.
