It might be the installation program that is corrupt. try installing from another source or download Windows Media Player 9.0.

zip316, I suggest that you go to the link below and get a fresh download of WMP7.1 and also WMP6.4 and then remove the 7.1 presently on your computer and then install the fresh WMP7.1 download. It could be that your present one has become corrupted.
BTW, I 'think' the mplayer2.exe is the old old WMP6.4. I have both of these players are sitting in one folder on my HD. If I choose to use 6.4, I just click on the shortcut I placed on my desktop for it.

Good luck to you.
