Windows 7: Registry problem?

Registry problem?

See the attachment please. As you can see it is a screenshot of my situation. I click on wmp, choose listen to favorites, wmp randomly chooses from my library and plays them in order. Nice - I like that.

As per the screenshot - if I want to make any changes while the music is playing all I need to do is point to the taskbar icon of wmp and a small window of wmp player comes up - see the screenshot.
Using that small icon I can change what is playing, pause and restart, skip ahead etc.
Recently I had to use a malware program as i got infected with some shopping junk and Malware bytes did the job and cleaned them out. However now the controls for the wmp small icon have disappeared.

Can I repair this - if so - how. Thank you to anyone who can help out

Hello and welcome Sandy just for starters you can run this in safe mode< if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

The if that doesn't fix the problem try a system restore back to when you know it was working the way you want it to - if not sure how to do that post back.:)

Doesn't Malwarebytes keep a log of what it removed? If so - post the log and the problem might be easy to spot.

I probably can't help much as I don't have WMP installed.

Yep well I guess if you can get back that far the WMP will still be there and you could even try Recuva for the at matter there are others but try that one first.
