Hi Gamer,

Try uninstalling (unchecking), rebooting, reinstalling (re-checking) & rebooting again.

If that fails, try a system restore

Your OP does say WMP11 as does your tag

@ JK;
It is possible to get WMP11 working in W7, it's obviously not very desirable and a mission to do but it can be done!

WMP 12 came with Windows 7. If you found a hack to install WMP 11, that could be the problem.
