Restart your PC and put it on safe mode  ( i think by holding F8?)
Then on your desktop go to my computer > Drive C: > program files > Windows Media Player..... find (setup_wm.exe) or (wmp.exe) Ok... delete this file but dont be scared kay?   Restart your PC again and enjoy your WMP

If you are using a pirated version of windows and have installed any kind of update from the microsoft website you are required to install the Microsoft Genuine Advantage program. This will cause several programs to not work.

If you are not using a pirated version of windows your cd key has been obtained by someone else and has been registed under their details. I would suggesting calling the Microsoft Helpline and report your issue to them.

My original windows media player is not working.how can i download a newest version of window vista home basic media player


I can't find any downloads for Windows Media Player that is packaged with Vista Home Basic. What I would recommend is downloading the latest version of VLC which can be found here. It is a highly-compatible, 100% free application that can run virtually any media format. I hope that my suggestion assists you.
