Please go to control panel and click add/remove programmes. Here check for the new version that you have installed. Remove it and you will get your old version.

If it is not there, then go to Start --- Programmes-----Accessories-----System tools ---- System Restore.

If you can find a highlighted previous date here select that date and restore your machine to that date.

Hi,
Check what format the Movie Download is and check the Error when playing the movie, most probably this is a Codec issue one reason why the move cannot be played.
If you are using Windows Media player you may need Codecs updated on your computer, also try download VLC player try playing the Movide on VLC player if still it will not play download codec see the LINK provided for the Download of the Codecs, after you click the link select the Full Version and install it on your computer.

My window media player not play no sounds


You need to download co-decs for your media player and you can fix it.
Go to codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm ">http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm and click on "Download K-Lite Codec Pack." When you are taken to the download page, select "K-Lite Codec Pack 5.5.4 FULL" and download the associated file. 2 Install the Codec pack to your local hard drive. Make sure to select "full installation." You may be prompted to restart your computer when the installation is complete. 3 Run your normal media player; attempt to play the video file suffering from missing sound. If the Codec pack installed correctly and you are using a supported media player, the sound should now function properly.
Thanks. Have a great day.

Microsoft Windows Media Player is a free media player software that comes with the personal computer version of Windows operating systems. The software supports basic file formats such as WMV, WMA, AVI, MP3, and ASF. The player included in Windows XP gives you the power to create your own CDs, search and organize digital media on your PC, and copy files to portable devices such as CDs and pen drives.
Fix Windows Media Player Problems
Corrupted and missing DLLs files, incorrect registry entries, and outdated files are some of the causes of Windows Media Player errors. Covered here are a few steps that you can take to fix common problems.
C00D11CD: Unknown Error
C00D11CD errors occur when an operating system component or some other program encounters an error and does not communicate it to Windows Media Player. Due to its generic nature and multiple reasons for occurrence, there is no specific solution to this problem.
If you encounter the error when trying to play an AVI or MPEG 2 file, then most likely, you do not have the correct codec version installed on your system. To fix a Windows Media Player problem related to codec, search for the required codec on the Internet, download it, and update it on your system to play the required file.
Windows Media Player uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) to authorize copying files to a CD or to download them from an online music store. If you do not have DRM authority to copy a particular song, you will not be able to play it and the error will pop up.
Windows Media Player uses the wmadmoe.dll file to encode files. If something goes wrong with this file, you may get the c00d11cd error when you try to copy songs from a CD to your hard disk. To fix a Windows Media Player problem in this situation, you must register the DLL file by running the command ‘regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll’.
80040155: Interface Not Registered
If this error occurs when you try to burn songs into a CD, then the most probable cause is that the required player files are no longer registered on your system. To fix this error, try to reinstall your Windows Media Player or download and install a newer version of the player, if available on the internet.
800C2EE2: Action timed out
This error occurs when your Windows Media Player is unable to connect to a server due to problem in the network, and therefore cannot play protected audio/video files that you download from an online music store. Incorrect Internet Explorer security settings might be the cause of this problem. To fix this, open Internet Explorer and select Tools-Internet Options-LAN Settings. Next, clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
C00D0FAA: Cannot rip the files
The error usually occurs when you try to rip CDs to MP3 format. Existence of entries from an earlier player version in the registry might be the reason behind this problem. One way to fix this problem is by adjusting the audio quality. However, if you want to maintain the audio quality, then to fix this Windows Media Player problem, open the Registry Editor by running the Regedit command and navigate to the subkey given below.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Sett ings\MP3Encoding
Here, open ‘LowrateSample’ and delete the value displayed in the Value Data box. Select OK and exit Registry Editor.
Many times errors also occur when there are corrupt files on the system or there are invalid DLL entries and other related incorrect entries in the system registry. For this, you must try to download reliable registry cleaner software from the Internet and scan your registry for invalid entries. Using registry cleaner software, you can easily and efficiently fix Windows registry problems, and make your PC free from irritating errors.
Errors can occur in Windows Media Player due to outdated files, missing or corrupt DLL files and incorrect registry entries. Most of the time, you can fix Windows Media Player problems by updating missing files or by upgrading the player to a later version. Additionally, to prevent registry-related problems, you can use a registry cleaner software to regularly scan the registry and eliminate invalid DLL entries and corrupt values from it.

I want to play bbc iplayer downloads with windows media player si


I find the K-lite Codec pack covers just about every video format. The included older style windows media player classic is also far less problematic than windows media - download 'Full' version here;

My windows media player wont play movies


Try downloading VLC player, if this does not play your videos then it is your Drive that needs a driver update or has gone bad. If VLC player does play it or asks you to install mpeg2 codecs, then all you need to do is google "mpeg2 codec download for windows media player X" (X being the current version of WMplayer you are using). The reason behind this problem is that Windows media player does not come preloaded with a full library of codecs, there are packages of codecs that you can download such as divx codecs that will have the majority of commonly used video compression decompressors.

Divx & Codec for Vista


-Unfortunately Windows media player is only loaded with a few codecs for video so you will need a codec pack found HERE

-just click Direct link and download and install the codec pack. Now you should be able to play 99.8 percent of video files in any format in WMP.

-As for myself, I swear by VLC media player as no additional codecs are required. its fast and easy to use. You can grab it HERE

I can not play avi files in my media player?


This will be a short solution. Or maybe not. Let's try.

Download the l8est audio/video codecs. I recommend the Windows XP Codecs: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/XP_Codec_Pack.htm

download and install VLC player. This player plays all formats of media ! I rarely use media player.

One thing you could also try is to download and install the latest direct X redist.
