Windows 7 64-bit

Ok, so I'm probably one of your intermediate users who found Seven Forums months ago, and even found these posts about the Codec and installed it, back in March.

Everything's been great until I was looking for a file while helping someone on the phone and went into Windows Media Player to try testing a file, and was prompted to assign which file types should default to Windows Media Player (probably because I've been using iTunes lately, with a new iPod). Anyways, as soon as Windows Media Player opened, it wouldn't go any further without assigning file types. I tried to bypass, but got a screen showing all file types and they were all checked, but also greyed out so I can't uncheck them.

I'm using the 64 bit version of WMP I believe (64 bit Win7) and now I get an error if I try to play any media file in WMP or Windows Media Center. And iTunes has now stopped working.

So, I assume I've done the "bad thing" that Chappy mentioned.

I skipped directly from WinVista to Win7, and as a result never really saw this problem before. If I've caused this to happen, how do I reverse it? My system is pretty much locked up at this point, with respect to playing any media....the only media that plays is standard system sounds and if I watch a video through a web browser (ie. Youtube). Everything else refuses to play.

What is Shark007's codec pack called in the Programs and Features menu? I figure I should try uninstalling it, and then reinstalling it....but I'm not sure what it is called.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1

Seems like a good replacement to my already installed K-Lite Codec Pack. I don't regularly tweak sound and video so I don't see the point in that anymore. According to my Operating System, which setup files do I need to run?
