Exclamation Default player for audio files problems... PLEASE Help!

I've had itunes and my ipod for about a month now and this is the second time this happens to me. Randomly when starting up itunes I will get a message that appears like this:

itunes has detected that it is not the default player for audio files. Do you want to make itunes the default player for audio files?

Naturally I select yes then the next message appears:

An error has occured when updating the default player for audio file types. You do not have enough access privledges for this operation.

Now my computer is a regular PC, not hooked up to any network. I am the sole user of the computer so there is no other administrator or anything. The first time this happened I went through the painstaking task of clearing out any other audio player on my computer and un-installed everything. Still no change. I then decided to simply re-install itunes. Problem SOLVED!

Now I get hit with this crap again! Same message, same problem. I go to reinstall itunes amd it doesn't work! Itunes will not reinstall because between the last reinstallation and now it was updated and the installation process aborts! What can I do? Is there a fix for this obvious glitch in the program? This is so frustrating!

What version of Windows (XP or 2000) are you using, and what service pack level are you at?

Basically, it sounds like iTunes is having a problem writing it's changes to the registry, although I'm not entirely sure why. It is possible that there is some other program running (either another audio application, or a virus scanner, or a system monitoring tool of some sort), that may be affecting this?
