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.

I would uninstall it and reinstall again. If that doesn't fix it, uninstall it and use Open Office instead. Far better, free open access and easier to use plus fully compatible with any microsoft stuff.

Update at 96% and freeze


Try doing a soft reset.
Insert a small pin or unfolded paperclip into the reset hole located at the back of the player.
Hold until the player shuts down.
Power on the player again by using the Power on/off key.
Note: Your songs and data will not be lost or corrupted by a soft reset.
If soft reset does not work, then you may have to use the Device Manager to recover your player:
If you have not already installed the Device Manager, follow the on screen instructions to install the Device Manager from the installation CD or download the latest version of the Device Manager application from http://www.philips.com/support.
Make sure all other applications Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device. Launch the Device Manager at Start->Programs->Philips Device Manager on your PC. Select the REPAIR tab on the dialogue box.
Power off the player. Press and hold the "+" key and then connect it to the PC until you are prompted to release the key.
Select the device name and then click OK and REPAIR.
IMPORTANT: All music & content of your device will be erased once the Player is repaired.
Once the repair is complete a dialogue box will pop up; click OK and unplug the Player from the computer.
The Device Manager will close automatically once the success message is displayed. Close all opened application and then unplug your device.
Once the Player is disconnected from the computer, the display will show "Firmware Upgrading" for a couple of seconds and then start up as usual.
Tip: Update your player's firmware to the latest version to reduce the chance of future hang-ups. See "How do I update my player with the latest firmware?" for instructions.

If you have a legitimate, unused product key, you can generally download the trial-version of the software from Microsoft's site, install, launch the application, and search under the "About" menu
for an option to enter your product key.

Hi,
This is not a very common problem, but in all likelihood your Avanquest software has altered your Windows files in such a way that you cannot install your media player.
Most fix-it utilities make back-ups of your system files as they were BEFORE running the utility.
Check in your Avanquest application to see if you can restore your system to the way it was before running the application, then try reinstalling Windows media player.
Let me know if you need any further assistance regarding the above.
Best wishes,
Graemevm
