You can go to any folder and choose "Folder Options" from a submenu. In there you go to "File Types".
Scroll to the bottom and find "wav" if it exist if not click "add" or "new".
Enter a description of the file type and extension ".wav" and then make a command "new" type "open" and choose the program that should be your default player by "browse".
That should be it!
If you have further problems or problems in understanding this description please notify me by mail and I'll guide you through the process more in depth.

I'd like to add a side note:  If you hold down the left shift button and then right click on one of your .wav and choose Open with... then find your program either among the ones listed or click browse to find it on your computer.  Then click on the particular program, make sure the "Always open this type of file with this program," and then press OK.

If you have a player called Hip or something like that on your system it will MAKE itself a default player without first consulting you, if you do have it you need to remove it from your Start->Programs->Startup folder.
