Windows 7: Bypass Open with dialogue for known filetypes

Solved:Bypass Open with dialogue for known filetypes

I use Media Player Classic as my default audio and video player. I have all compatible formats set to open with MPC by default. However, despite setting .WMV or .MPG videos to open with MPC, each time I double-click on one of these filetypes from Explorer, I receive the pictured 'Open With' dialogue.

Why do certain formats present this dialogue, whereas others like .AVI or .MOV do not? You will see from the image that the MPC is already recognized as the default program to open .MPG files. So why does this annoying box pop up? How can I bypass the dialogue entirely so that the .MPG and .WMV files open up in MPC directly? Thanks!

Update: Reinstall of Media Player Classic fixed the file association 'Open with' problem

you should only have to do this once, if the "always use this program" box is checked surely?

Already did that, and the same problem exists. If I change the default program for .MPG for example, to Windows Media Player, this bypasses the dialogue. However, if I set the default as Media Player Classic, the dialogue pops up. Maybe this is an issue with MPC?
