What enhancements are you referring to? You might get some help if you can provide more detail as to what your problem is.

Wmp12, when you right click while you're watching a movie, you go to "enhancement"----->video setting. The slider to adjust, the "hue", "brightness", "saturation" and "contrast" doesn't work. The image in the movie stays the same. For all the others enhancements, it works, equalizer, speed, etc... This happened after I've installed an upgrade for AMD radeon graphic card. I don't know for sure if it's the upgrade or just a coincidence

Those enhancements never worked on my systems either. No idea why not. I know this does not solve your question, but you are not the only one with that problem. Maybe someone knows how to fix it.

Are those enhancements extra? Or, are they built-into WMP?

Those settings work on my machine. I'm guessing that it is a function of your video card and since you say that it was working until a recent video card driver update I'd be willing to bet that is what the issue is. You could try to uninstall the current driver and re-install the previous driver to see if that restores the functionality.

Perhaps you have a restore point on your system from just prior to the driver update that will let you restore back to the previous driver.

I've uninstalled the update from AMD and put back the old version and it's working now. It kind of pissing me off 'cause I want all my programs and drivers updated. Anyway, thank you for your replies
