    I would go for the simple option and try reinstalling media player...Your music files etc will still be in your libraries

    Or you can get VLC, a nice media player.

    Otherwise if you want to deal with this application failure there could be someone on these forums which has more windows media knowledge than i do...

    Yeah, ive tried reinstalling windows media player via the add and remove features rebooting and then going back and selecting windows media player again. No luck. I would like to stick with Windows media player. I do use VLC from time to time.

    When you uninstalled WMP did you uninstall then restart the PC and reinstall? If you just uninstalled and then reinstalled, the original problem can still be there.

    Not really my area of if I had one....but if your libraries are very large that can cause the issue...on the last post do you have any restore points?

    sorta looks like your registry is whacked it is having issues locating root files

    also not sure if this would work ever try to install a older version then update it see if it will go through
