    Hi cnm! :)

    No, to be fair, I didn't really investigate those links thoroughly.
    Also, Freakchris03 didn't mention any DirectX related errors.
    Do you have any??

    As this is XP, MS unfortunately didn't provide a way of uninstalling Media Player.

    You could try runnning Sfc /scannow to have Windows File Protection verify the integrity of your system files, or even do a Repair Install.

    Alternatively, try upgrading to WMP 9.0, if you haven't already.

    I don't think that's likely, but this is Windows...:D

    Did you try running Sfc /scannow already?

    Also, I just read that WMP 9.0 automatically enters reinstall mode if you install it on top of itself, which ought to be the best way to do a repair.
