Media Player 11 for Vista will not open
Somewhat recently WMP has stopped working. When I click the icon, nothing
happens. I've searched on this forum and other sites, I've tried everything,
but nothing fixed my problem. The program is not running in the Application
or Processes tab of the Task Manager. I've tried to register some dll files
as instructed by this site:
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b/925704/en-us but still nothing.
The only way i can run WMP is to right click on it, and click "Run as
administrator". Has anyone had a problem like this?

I am having the exact same problem. But WMP is not the only program I am having issues with. McAfee is also not working properly. When I click on it, a blank window appears. There are also some websites that will not load and I believe it is related to these problems. Please help.

Re: Media Player 11 for Vista will not open
I was having the same problem. I was able to fix it through a System Restore, accessible through the Control Panel. I am not sure what was causing the problem because it had happened 4 or 5 days before, but restoring to an earlier setting worked.
