    Go to the Microsoft download centre. Download and install wmp10. See if that helps.

    You can get it HERE.

    If the above doesn`t work.This answered someone elses problem with WMP.It was a different problem,so it might not
    work for you,but I need the posts.

    Start WMP, then right-click on the taskbar icon for WMP, then select Move from those options. Click the left and up arrows on your keyboard until WMP comes back onscreen - it is simply offscreen at this point. If a list of options do not come up, you are in skin mode in the player. Browse to c:\program files\windows media player\skins and double-click on a skin file - that should open up in the player, and the player should then be visible again."

    From here -
