So I bought the windows upgrade CDs to upgrade my vista PC's to 7. (Big mistake) Wiped out the HD and did the entire install. But every time I open up a video on my WMP it starts to play then stops. The PC then opens up a SV Host program that uses up 80% of the processor. So I have no video playing and my PC won't hardly work at all till I cntrl alt del and close the SV host.

What can I do to make this OS work correctly? The PC is an HP m9500z.

Hi -

First do a quick check with scannow from an elevated command prompt. See the details below.

(On windows 7 and Vista) Go to Start / Search and type CMD In the Search Results right click Command Prompt and choose Run as Administrator.
In the Command Prompt type sfc /scannow. Make sure there is a space between c and / .
Once it's finished corrupted files should be repaired and your .exe's will work once again.

Regards -

Some people report Microsoft Fixit Center cures problems with Windows Media Player.
Take a look here.
