WMP locking up would indeed block Media Center from working, so that would
be expected. The key issue would be that Configure Sharing is locking up.
Is the player's library functioning correctly? I'm not really aware of many
ways that Configure Sharing would seize up WMP, but it's possible that a
defunct library could cause something of this sort. =\
Speaking for myself only.
for some helpful WMP info.
