    I'm really not sure what happened to my Windows Media Player; however, I DO have children/teenagers using the same computer - I may never know. My Media Player had been working and in the last week or so when attempting to play a song I receive an error message indicating Media Player is unable to run "due to a missing component".

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program. (Interestingly, the first time I unstalled the program and re-booted - it was still there!?)
    I have also made sure the PC is current with regard to Microsoft updates.
    The machine is running Windows XP.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance!

    ....(then I'll move on to solving slow performance, etc. - in another forum area :()
