How do I remove QuickTime and replace it with Windows Media Player?

This Content Component encountered an error

I loaded a recent Photoshop program called Olympus Camedia which required QuickTime to function properly. There were no concerns at this point as the program was downloaded and works well. The problem lies that QuickTime is now the default program that runs all of my MPEG and media programs everywhere in my system (Outlook express attachments, website media promotions etc.). What I would like to know is how do I return back to my original...

setup where Windows Media Player was the default?

QuickTime installs an entry in the Control Panel that will allow you to free up its file associations. Double-click on the QuickTime icon and select "File Type Associations" from the dropdown list, then click the File Types button and browse through the tree diagram that appears. Uncheck everything you don't want QuickTime to handle.
