control panel - programs and features - Turn Windows features on or off

Untick media player and okay through it.
Reboot, go back to the same place and tick the box again okay through it.

If that doesn't return it to default/initial settings, I don't know what will.
even that isn't actually removing it, it's kind of disabling it and restarting it.
Added to Maguscreed I would also recommend uncheck on .NET Frameworks 3.5 and re-check it from Programs and Features. If nothing works then Repair Install would the best thing to do.

I have .NET Framework 4 in Programs. I should have the earlier versions somewhere but if that's the one (3.5) that's not working right, how to fix it? I could redownload 3.5. Worth it? I did a repair on 4. Still getting the error. Also did disable/enable as Maguscreed suggested too.

No way to do a repair install, no Win 7 disks. Newer system so not sure why this would be giving me trouble. I guess I'm stuck with it. Hopefully it won't manifest itself in other problems with WMP.

in the meantime might I suggest VLC player, it will stream capture, even convert is fairly small and doesn't rely on codecs so it plays most everything right off the bat.
VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!
also has advanced render methods a deep list of settings and supports a playlist feature... blah blah... it's got everything media player does

.NET Frameworks 3.5 and above is build into the OS so you won't find it. If it's under warranty check with the vendor and see if you get an OS disk.

I am sure this issue is related to .NET

.NET 3.5.1 is listed in Windows Features. I have unchecked it and rechecked it.

In programs I have .NET Framework 4 Client Profile listed. Is this correct or should it be the full version?

Are there other wizards to check to see if all will give this error?
