My Samsung laptop runs Win 7 Pro 32 bit.
Recently WMP stopped working. It won't read CD's and if I use Open with... it flashed something on the screen for a fraction of a second, and that is all.
Troubleshooter gives this message: "Configuration settings might be set incorrectly."
The other error message I sometimes get is: "Server execution failed."
I have tried to disable WMP in the Feature section, rebooted and the enabled WMP again. Still nothing.
Used C-Cleaner for a registry clean.
Tried to download a new copy from website but only got a far a the Windows official site saying it is available on the Windows 7 DVD. The laptop came with Windows pre-installed, I only have a backup CD/DVD.
I am unable to roll back to a previous working point.
What do I do now. To start from scratch would be the last option. There must be a simple way out of this mess.
Yes, I know about VLC and I am using that at present but would like to get WMP beck up again.
Any ideas? Please.
