    Have you tried downloading another copy of MP10 ? Does mplayer2(mplayer2.exe) work ?Are there any other things not working/running slow.

    a few of my friends seemed to have conflicts between intervideo dvd player and wmp 10. Do you have the intervideo player installed?

    Try this

    I had a similar problem, here is what I did: 1. back up your music licenses. 2. uninstall Media Player 10. 3. Go to M$ website, download Media Player9. 4. besure 9 is functional. if it is, than download 10 again.
    This was my own fix, and it worked. No guarantees, but it's worth a try. Good luck. :confused:

    I can't uninstall it because it is not in my programs list. When I try to install media player 9, it says that I have the current version, and then it exits.

    Windows Media Player 10
    If you have installed Windows Media Player 10, you can roll back to the version of the Player that was on your computer before installing Windows Media Player 10.

    To roll back from Windows Media Player 10 to a previous version, do the following:
    In Control Panel (Category View), click Add or Remove Programs.
    Click Remove a program, and then do one of the following:
    If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, select the Show updates check box (at the top of the list), click Windows Media Player 10 (in the Windows Updates section), and then click Change/Remove.
    - or -
    If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 1 or earlier, click Windows Media Player 10, and then click Change/Remove.

    But I don't have Windows XP service pack 1 or 2. And when I go to add/rmove programs, Windows Media Player 10 doesn't show up.

    What exactly is the state of your OS ? Updating might solve a few problems(it can cause a few too,but be optimistic)

    Go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/faq.aspx , and see if you can find the help you need.

    What OS are you running? If it's Windows XP, I strongly advise you download SP1 and SP2, for security and many other reasons-including program compatibility issues. :knock:

    free

    I know it's hard to believe that M$ gives anything away, SP1 and SP2 are free. Go to their website to download them. Some programs have some difficulty with them, but either M$ or the program's site will have workarounds for them. :)
