Windows Media Player - doesnt work!!!!

#1
"server execution failed" that is the error i get when I try to open any video or song.

Also when i try to open WMP from the start menu it doesnt open and it doesnt show up in Task Manager
I am using Windows 7 and the new media player, i have never really liked WMP before but i like this one because of how lightweight it looks when you watch a video.

Any help would be great

Control Panel > Administrative > Services > Windows Media Player Network Sharing > Click "Restart" > and finally restart your computer.

I would do a system restore but i dont know when it started and i have done heaps of stuff (uninstalling/installing) since then so I cant. And There is no such thing as add and remove programs in Win7 but when you go into Programs and Features there is only an option to uninstall I tried that then reinstalling but that didnt work and neither did cybercore's idea :( but thanks anyway and if you have any other ideas it would be appreciated

I'd recommend an alternate player that doesn't use as much memory hogging.

It's called KmPlayer and can be downoaded here:

Download KMPlayer
