Dont't you want to use any other player? I know you feel need to use Media player,but if you tell me what do you need it for,then I might be able to suggest you other player. There are many softwares that do the same type job but much better than Media player. I'm not saying that your problem can't be fixed,but using another player software will take much less time that fixing Media player problem

Bump..

1: after taking ownership and granting admin full rights does any thing needs to be reverted?

2: when I searched the file in c drive as shown in above post it's shown at a lot of places. Which one to repair each one is in a bit different place.
