Windows 7: corrupted windows media player

corrupted windows media player

I'm using windows 7 on H.P. desktop 32 bit with I.E. 8
The troubleshooter has told me that the W.M.P. is corrupted (see attachment).
Does anybody know how to "uncorrupt" it.
Thanks for any help or advice that I receive. John

or, System Restore if that is option for you
or, this is for corrupted database - Fix a Corrupt Windows Media Player Database

Grimmjow made a typo. ( go to start, type cms ) - it is not cms but cmd. But else it is a good suggestion.
