Try deleting the files in Explorer while Media Player is running. WMP should notice that the files are being deleted and should remove them from the library too.Speaking for myself only. See http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info. This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.
Before you start this you should know that you can only change the region code so many times on a DVD player. There is a limit. Open MY Computer on your screen, then right click the DVD drive and select Properties. Look at each tab presented for the DVD and you will find one to change the DVD Region. Make sure you check how many more times you can change it before you lose the option to change region.
the file which doesn't has any name, is a spyware virus.. If it is marked please unmark it as it may cause several damage to ur system
If ur Windows Media Player is troublin u, click start, Select Default Programs Now Select the Windows Player as MP3 Universal Player.. After u do so, it wil take some time After it is done, restart ur system I guess it works..
Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:
Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again
Equalizer is built into windows media player. There is no equalizer built into your audio device unless you have the proper software for the particular brand such as Realtek AC97' Audio Codec with the full installer package. Or Soundblaster Audigy with its installer package.
If you just want to use windows media player, you can usually access the equalizer by going to Now playing and right clicking on the visualization or the middle of the program's screen. It changes for each version of WMP so I cant tell you exactly where it will be.
ok, you need to type msconfig in the in the search bar in the start menu, when the window pos up select the startup tab and uncheck the boxes that says WMP in the name, and click apply and exit, reboot the machine so the registry is updated, now you will ahve the pc booting without WPM starting up at all!!!!! any probz and post back'
