Since the last few days, everytime I try to play a DVD on Windows media player, a pop-up window appears : " WMP has encountered a problem and needs to shutdown........."
I don't have any problems playing any CD's or game discs. I uninstalled WMP11 and rolled back to the previous one and the same problem occurs. re-intalled WMP11 and again
same problem. Also when a WMP attempts to play a DVD, the adjustment knobs on the graphics equalizer aren't there. The program is obviously corrupted but how do I fix it?

Hello and welcome, first I am moving this from XP to audio and video so more people with these skills will see it. Second the error message would probably be helpful. Also I have seen something like this when the system Time is not correct.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
