    Thank you for this information. Clearly there is something wrong with my system. I have two options: Either restore an image backup (that would take me back to 7 June) or try an in-place reinstallation of Windows. I'll try the second option and hope for the best.

    Then in reverse - if I un-associate extensions it is no longer available as a default app:

    Well do you have any other media players installed?

    If you used the installed version of MPC-BE try unistalling using this:

    HiBit Uninstaller

    Then reboot and reinstall MPC-BE

    If using Macrium - image current system first. Once you restore, mount the current backup that you made and copy missing personal files from personal directories from it into your restored windows using this:

    TSR Copy Changed Files Software - Free software for logging changed and modified files.

    Are you sure that the backup does not have the same problem?

    I'm 99% sure. Hopefully that 1% will not be the cause of trouble!

    I did an image restore, but I didn't see any difference. Maybe the problem is hidden in the 1% that I mentioned. I'll give up and use another media player instead. Probably VLC. The only thing that I'll really miss with MPC-BE is the preview icon when using the progress bar (like YouTube).

    I prefer Potplayer. Mostly because like MPC-BE it accepts MadVR.

    VLC - I avoid just due to playback quality.

    I have used it for years and I never had a problem with it. There again though, it is down to personal taste I sippose!

    I used it for years too. Until I saw the light.

    I mean it's great for it's "plays everything" ability but playback quality is frankly quite poor when compared to a few other players that I've used.

    Biased opinion here:

    I might test it out this week, thanks.

    I installed Potplayer and I'll use it as an alternative to VLC. As for madVR I can never understand how to use it. I tried in the past to use it, but I never got to see where the the settings are for this program. I cannot understand if I have to run an executable or I have to see the settings in my media player.
