    I am running Windows 7 Professional and I am not sure when, but my WMP stopped running. It gives me this error code: 0x80004005.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Kiki

    Try system restore. That often solves many problems.

    Thank you both! I was trying to keep from doing a system restore and pip22's link was for an older version of WMP but led me to this which worked perfectly: http://support.microsoft.com/fixit/
