i use to have wmp10 which worked brilliantly. recently "upgraded" to bloody wmp11 beta... big mistake. it took the entire processors power (3ghz, with 1.5 gig ram) to play music or video. i finally manages to "rollback" to wmp 10 as you cannot simply delete it and reinstall the previos version because it apparently changes some other files that are not really anything to do with media player..... these dam "updating" files must not have been removed when i did the "rollback" as wmp10 no also uses the entire precessor. i am going crazy tryin to fix it...

Here are the release notes on wmp 11--

Maybe you could use Add/Remove Windows Components to remove the rollback & then restart & add it back & see what happens.

Em... not sure. System restore will go back to what configurations u had at that point.
Im not really sure though if that will fix the problem.
Cant u just convert back to wmp 10 or use something else as i suggested???
What do u use wmp for????
