3) You can try to correct it by running sfc /scannow from an elevated cmd

One of the best sources for WMP errors and fixes is MVP Chris Lanier's
blog--check the hyperlinks in the left pane.
I always grin when I see an article from a MSFT MVP entitled this way--and

Microsoft: Fix WMP Or Trash It!
Memo: to Alberto Gonzales
Deputy AG Paul J. McNulty

Goodling tampered with ongoing investigations and tried to manipulate them.
None of you had significant litigation experience and now you are going to

And many of you will be gone soon.
