I have the same problem with WMP and have tried everything including a new keyboard. I can't type msconfig without WMP popping up. It seems like all the files are associated to WMP. My desktop icons all have windows icon instead of the old generic ones, I can't open outlook, I have no restore point. I would appreciate any other suggestions...

I had the problem for some time, and i tried all of the above but nothing helped, when i uninstalled the WMP, VLC Player started popping up, and when i uninstalled that, iTunes started popping up, i was lost..... until someone told me to check on my keyboard by the media player key, and i found that it was sticky (i guess some sweet beverage spilled on it, and it was pressed down, so whenever i pressed any key on the keyboard it engaged and made the default media player pop up...) so i cleaned it with some alcohol and thank g-d the problem was gone!!!

Losing ripped CD's And downloads from Windows Media Player


When you rip using WMP the music files are saved in a default location.
  • Open tools
  • Open Rip
  • Read "Rip Music to This Location"
  • If no artist on CD the folder will be "Unknown Artist"
  • In that folder contains by date-...the folders containing your music
You can check before you close WMP that they are saved

My laptop keeps saying "configuring media gallery"


I'm not sure what programs you deleted, but try some freeware programs to cleanup the laptop and find the origin of the pop-up. 1, Freeware CCLEANER: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
This freeware program will remove the junk from your machine, in the TOOLS section, STARTUP section, disable ALL unnecessary Startup programs, look for the source of the pop-up and delete or disable it. 2, Freeware MALWAREBYTES at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version, Run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. ALSO, run a System File Check using this procedure: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

With your laptop there should have been a card or foldout guide that has the Windows certificate of authenticity which has your product key for Windows and on the bottom of your laptop, there is the product key for windows. that is the number it is asking for, put caps lock on when entering it just to make sure and this will validate your copy of windows.

Acer Aspire 5570Z


Ok that is just a program that comes with the Acer laptops, it really is Useless and I dont use it on my computer, its part of the acer e management , e recovery, and etc programs that acer made. To fix this you can uninstall it under the ADD/remove programs or if you want to keep it you can then goto the acer website and under support put your model number in and download that particular software again and it might fix itself if there where some type of missing files on that particular software. Secondly if this is a vista machine it could be the software is not compatible and it causes the OS to crash which then comes with that error to the user and never goes away . Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.

By default, Windows does not include a DVD decoder (which is what you need to watch DVDs).
If you are using WMP10: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx
If you are using WMP11:
http://savvybytes.com/2006/10/02/playing-dvds-with-windows-media-player-11/

Install the codec and you will be able to watch DVDs!

Compaq Presario 700 PC Notebook keyboard locking out


Check that your notebook power settings are correct, it may be that when you press off or shutdown it's actually going into hibernation or standby, this is only correct when you close the lid without shutting down through Windows. As for Windows Media Player, you cannot remove it as it's a Windows component, you can only dissable it through Add/Remove programmes>Add/Remove Windows Components.
