Click start and type 'windows features' into the search box.

Then choose 'Turn Windows Features on or off' there you will see whats been installed.

In your case check the media features to see if its been installed.

Do you have Windows 7 N? The N versions are available in all editions except Home Basic, and they come without Windows Media Features which include for instance WMP and WMC. If so, you can download missing media features here: Download details: Media Feature Pack for Windows 7 N and Windows 7 KN (KB968211)

You can also download and install this if the media features are missing for some other reason.
