has anyone recently done a group of four automatic updates from microsoft?
more specifically, the one 'security update for windows media player 10 (KB911565)'.
after i installed that one, MOST of my movies played in black and white.
they play fine with VLC player but not with WMP10.
to get around it i have uninstalled the update but am wondering if anyone knows why this is happening?

Download the update again restart computer if the problem is still present:

Go to the Start Menu and select Run
copy/paste in the following:

c:\windows\inf\unregmp2.exe /UpdateWMP

See if that will solve the problem.
