    Right click on a program icon that has the problem and see what it's pointing to for a target

    Cant you just select a video file and go right click/open with/ choose default program - and then you choose it (whatever you use) and thick the little box next to the Always select this program for this kind of file
    Do the same for audio and pictures. I don't know any other way, maybe someone does.
