After the Windows 8.1 Update, folder properties change & other problems
I am experiencing an issue with the latest Windows 8.1 x64 updates. After restarting my computer, my folder properties change, and the default program (RealPlayer Cloud) for my mp3 files is removed. I cannot change it back, instead, a box pops up with each song, "do you want to continue to use RealPlayer Cloud", I click yes, but it does that for each song. I did a system restore, reverted back to the time before the updates, and my system is normal.
Has anyone else had these same issues?

If I was in your place, I would go ahead with installing the Windows 8.1 Update and then reinstall any program which gave me problems.

Since itīs just a few updates:
install one update, check if your audioplayer works
repeat until all updates are installed.
Two other methods for troubleshooting, fx. when there are a lot of updates:
1. install fx. half of them, check if everything works,
install the rest.
2. install them in groups, fx. 5 at a time, check if everything works
repeat until all updates are installed
If your computer doesnīt work then you know the problem is one of the updates in the last group....
In that case:
do a system restore
install all updates before the last group
install the rest one at at time, check if everything works
You can of course create system restore points after each group, but that will take time,
in my experience itīs usually a lot faster to just reinstall the updates...
In your case, I would suspect one of the Security Updates for 8.1
Install these 3 first and check if your audioplayer works:
Microsoft .NET Framework
Security Update for Internet Explorer Flash Player
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
Then install the rest, one at a time....
