Help On Reinstalling Windows Media Player 7

Hi, my windows media player 7 keeps crashing, i've tried closing other background programs and uninstalling K-Lite codecs from my PC. Is there a way for me to do a reinstallation of media player?

i'm just thinking it might work...

Hello RTB,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Control Panel (icons view)>Programs and Features>Turn Windows Features on/off. Click on the plus for Media Features and uncheck WMC and WMP. OK. Then I'd reboot to be sure. Recheck the boxes.

Hope this helps.
