    First check your file associations for correct bindings!

    After that you may try to Re-install over your existing installation either your same version of WMP or a newer version !

    Another alternative is :

    for WMP versions 7+ :
    go to the directory where u've installed WMP and look for a file called setup_wm.exe
    Run that and say re-install all components

    That should fix it
