windows media player has stopped working

every time i run windows media player it keeps bringing up a message which says


The file wmploc.dll has a version number of 120.7.7601.17514 where
12.0.7600.16667 was expected

windows media player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled.

Do you want to install the player from the microsoft web site?


I went to the web site but i couldn't download coz there was no link.
Is there anybody who can help me fix this?
