I suspect it's got something to do with Kazaa which I have been using for a few weeks. I can play my music via Kazaa but if I click on Media player it just bleeps. It's annoying cos I like burning cds from MP rather than Nero which came with my system. Anyone had this ? Thanks
Try uninstalling Kazaa, see if it makes a difference. If you're not using a lite version of Kazaa then there may be some spy/adware which has affected media player. Use Ad-aware click here and Spybot S&D from click here
If that doesn't resolve anything then go to the Microsoft site and re-download and re-install Media player. (I'd have suggested re-installing media player first, but it's a larger download than Kazaa, if you're on a fast connection try either first)
I've uninstalled Kazaa after saving my music and rebooted. I've also run Adaware. No joy !!! I can't play music at all now. I'm downloading Spybots then I'll give that a go. I might download Media Player again but I don't know how to uninstall it as it doesn't show up in Add/Remove programs.
There is no way to uninstall media player (I don't know why they don't let you), so it won't appear in add/remove.
I'd leave Kazaa well alone, even the lite versions with the spyware removed as they're too open to letting viruses into your computer, and tend to cause problems and leave things behind even when you've uninstalled.
Anyway, glad you got the problem sorted.
