Ok, take a hammer.. just kidding..
First thing to do is goto www.windowsupdate.com and download the lastest service pack (3) then download the latest media player.

this should fix the issue. or try www.iobit.com and use system care 3 it fixes most registry problems in microsoft apps.

Windows media player throws error when I play any audio


As you may have already notice, there isn't a problem with your driver.
However to gain a better understand the problem you rule out a couple of things. However, if the this problem is only present in windows media player. Then you should try another play i.e. VLC media player.

1. Go to you device manager and make sure the device is working properly. If not try uninstalling the device, restarted the computer letting windows discover the device again.

2. Next go to windows media player file (press "alt" key to get toolbar in newer version. Select options -> devices select your speaker -> properties and be sure that your audio device is available and selected.

3. Finally if all these options has failed, please use an alternative media like the one mention above (VLC media player).

I hope this have been a great help in your troubles. Please provide feedback on the solution.

Hi,my windows7 wmp12 is corrupted and won't open and play videos at all i want to know is it possible to either roll back orf install wmp11 in its place or install an uncorrupted version of wmp12


I'm sorry we got disconnected. yes you can roll back to windows media player eleven. Go to control panel and select and remove programs. when the list comes up scroll down to windows media player 12. Click on remove and it should tell you that it will roll back to the previous version after it is uninstalled. Now, if you recently installed version twelve, you can try something else first. Click on start them programs and select accessories and scroll down to system tools and then select restore. when it opens, select to restore to an earlier time and then when the calendar comes up, select the date you installed version twelve of windows media player, then on the right hand side you will see where your windows media player twelve was installed . Left click on that and they should tell you that it will restore the computer to the time before you installed windows media player twelve . your computer automatically set a restore point when you installed windows media player version twelve. I suggest using the restore option first.

Hello my friend, how are you? Regarding on your problem, you can do the 1 time search in all your music files regardless of their individual format by using Windows Media Player Software which was pre-installed already in your Xp after you install your OS XP in your computer. Using Windows Media Player you can group all the music files you have in computer per title, artist, album, genre or even date and names. To do that kindly follow the steps below: 1. Open Windows Media Player located at the program files in your computer. In case you cannot locate it kindly click the START BUTTON located buttom part of your scree.

WMP 11 validation issue


Windows Media Player is a feature of the Windows operating system and cannot be removed entirely. However, depending upon which version of the Player and Windows that you are using, you might be able to roll back to the version of the Player that was previously on your computer. The procedure varies depending upon which version of the Player you are running.

If your computer is running Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows XP SP2, Windows 2000 SP3, or Windows 2000 SP4, you can use the Set Program and Access Defaults feature to remove links to the Player on your computer. Note that this does not remove the Windows Media Player software. To remove access to the Player, do the following: 1.
In Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs.
2.
Click the Set Program and Access Defaults button, and then choose a configuration (such as "Non-Microsoft" or "Custom").
