    I hope this is the right forum to place this topic, if not I'm truly sorry. However, I am at my wits end and I need some help if anyone has experienced this before.

    Recently my Windows Media Player has stop responding, it will open up when I click the icon but from there it freezes at the screen and I have to end the program through task manager which says its not responding.

    I have tried restarting my computer, I have done several system restore check points to no avail. When this first started happening I did solve it through >Control Panel >Programs >Turn Windows Features On and Off >Unchecked Windows Media Player >Restarted then went back through the same thing to re-check it and then restarted, this worked ONCE. Now whenever I try to do it, it doesn't help.

    I need Windows Media Player for the current job I'm doing and this is my computer with my main files that I have to work from not mention I'd like to be able to watch my movies since its the only thing I have to play DVDs.

    Does anyone know anything else I can do? Thank you for any help.
