WMP 12 will not re-install on Windows 7 Home Premium

I click on wmp icon in taskbar and receive message stating wmp is not installed correctly "do I want to nstall it correctly" click on yes and am taken to a page with no links or anything to continue with procedure!!! Have tried to install it through "control panel - windows features" but it does not activate and only shows an empty menu box!!! Cannot seem to find any method of installing it correctly. It shows in "start-all progs" menu but fails to open when I try to open it from there.

Info as to cause and corrective steps in the simplest language would be highly appreciated

many thanks
