Windows 7: Why am I getting a 'Welcome to Windows Media Player' popup now??

Why am I getting a 'Welcome to Windows Media Player' popup now??

Hi All

I've been using WMP 12 for ages now. Just went to open it to play some music while working at the computer and got this popup asking if I want recommended or custom settings for it; like it's the first time I'm opening it.

I haven't upgraded or changed any settings since I used it last a couple of days ago. I'm pretty sure that when I first opened WMP on this machine, I used the recommended settings. But, before I click on anything, have I 'lost' everything that was in WMP??

I'm having a bad day, I don't need more problems

Thanks in advance for any help

I've had that WMP settings malarkey once or twice in the past, usually just after an update Tuesday. It happened again this month - I just click usual settings, and you don't see the message again.
