i have just reinstalled vista home basic from windows 7 rc 7100 and, of course, all my old files were in the windows.old folder. all of my drivers weren't there so i used driver max to reinstall them. now that issue is fixed, i am having trouble playing dvd's on my laptop. as a default, auto play plays it with windows media player. trouble is, it loads up the player, and then says i don't have a compatible M-PEG 2 DECODER installed. i clicked on web help and found i had to pay for an M-PEG 2 decoder.
(i am only a kid my parents will go mad if i use their debit cards!)
i thought there would be other decoders compatible with wmp11 that i could download for free, but they never worked. i have been trying to find an uninstall option for wmp11 all over the internet, but because i've reinstalled vista, it doesn't show up in add or remove programs.
solving any of the two would really help; uninstalling wmp11 OR finding a free m-peg 2 decoder
