Hi, I just made my own computer and when I tried to install windows media player all that happens is the little blue circle swirls and then nothing. I would really like to use this as this is my main music player.
Thanks for any help!

What version of Windows are you loading Home premium/ Professional....
The two I listed come with wmp already so there is nothing to download other than a fresh install disk.
