I have been having some problems with Media Players which I have only just started to use (such as media failed reports, no device found).  In trying to identify the cause I have come up with the following: 'Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service failed to start  Error 1068' and 'Media streaming is not turned on' and from the Troubleshooter 'Configuration settings might be set incorrectly ---- reset default WMP settings'.


Can anyone give me advice on how to correct this?


Also, I am going to have to re-learn about codecs.  Firstly, if a codec is installed on a PC is it accessible to any Media Player or do they have to be installed / attached to a particular Player?  And I have heard that some codec packs on the web are malware, to be avoided.
