Windows 7: Media player buttons not showing & general 'Not responding' issues

16 Jul 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Media player buttons not showing & general 'Not responding' issues


I'm using an ASUS notebook, Windows 7 64-bit.

When I play a video file on Windows Media Player or QuickTime Player, the control buttons are not displayed. I have attached pics to show what I mean. The 1st pic is Windows Media Player and the 2nd is QuickTime Player. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing QuickTime.

Another problem I've been having is frequent 'not responding' issues, particularly immediately after startup, where everything will freeze and I need to wait for 20 seconds or so before anything starts responding again.

I don't know how could this happen. But If I were you, I will opt for other players, like VLC, 5KPlayer, KMplayer and so much more.:)
