How to restore the ability to play or save a wave file to Internet Explorer?

  I had a piece of software that required that I install QuickTime.
After installation I noticed that when I clicked on a wave file in Internet Explorer QuickTime would be activated to play the file.  Previously, I would be given the option to save or play the file.  If I chose play, it would be played via winamp. I uninstalled QuickTime.  Now clicking on a wave file prompts me to install QuickTime.  How can I restore my system to a pre-QuickTime condition?  

                                     Thanks

Wave files are already associated with Winamp.
As stated the problem is in Internet Explorer.

sorry, i didnt notice that.

Have you try to restore the default setting for your IE?

1. From IE brower window go to tools and internet option
2. Click on the advance tab and click on restore default setting button below.
3. See if this work,or else we might need a little registry tweak here.

Regards

  It seems doubtful that such an action would change the pointer to a "plugin"  I believe though that it would reset
my preferences and security levels.  I am reluctant to do this unless there is some indication that it possibly might work.

                                   Thanks
