i already have a ton of windows updates/hotfixes, i've been thinking about reinstalling them and seeing if that works. but the problem isn't just a windows media player problem. i read on another forum to try to make a new windows xp user profile and delete the current one so i tried that and when i tried to delete the profile the same error came up.
when i go to uninstall windows media player, i don't see it on the add/remove programs. is there a certain window update/hotfix i should uninstall to do this?
i also read that a system restore might work. i tried this twice and it said it was unable to do it both times. i don't know what's up with my computer, i really don't wanna format it.
