Windows 7: How to turn back WMP

How to turn back WMP

As long as I've had the computer I never set up WMP. Don't use it. Today in the course of troubleshooting (no WMP add-on in IE8) I reluctantly started setting it up. I must have cancelled at some point so now I have some of my media files (music) loaded in when I start the program.

I want to get back to where it was. Meaning it has not been set up (gives the prompt to start setting it up). Any way to do this? Will a ui/ri still leave me with it enabled? Thanks

msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerConfigurationDiagnostic

I believe running that line from the search bar (may have to go command line) will solve it for you.

The wizard won't load, an error occured. That can't be good.

A system restore got it back to how it was (not set up) but the troubleshooting wizard still does not work. Suggestions?

Hello there,

What is the error in the Event Viewer? Or what's is the error? Run SFC /SCANNOW to Repair Windows 7 Files | Captain Debugger If you didn't install Service Pack then try to install it.

Hope this helps,

SP1 is installed. Ran SFC /verify a few days ago and everything was good. Will do a SCANNOW and post back. Here is the error message:

SFC /scannow found no problems. Any more thoughts?

Okay here's my last thought to turn it to default state.
control panel - programs and features - Turn Windows features on or off
Scroll to media features
expand it
Untick media player and okay through it.
Reboot, go back to the same place and tick the box again okay through it.

If that doesn't return it to default/initial settings, I don't know what will.
even that isn't actually removing it, it's kind of disabling it and restarting it.

Hi guys! New here, just put Windows 7 on my laptop on Sunday. I'm really liking it thus far. One thing I noticed maybe just today. When the screen shuts off due to time or the lid being closed, it doesn't seem to want to turn back on. I can put into standby and bring it back out and it...
