First try downloading the WMP9 codecs update from the Microsoft website:

click here

Then download the K-lite standard codecs pack from:

click here

which covers virtually every audio/video codec likely to be required.

Also ensure that from WMP's Toos>Options>File Types that all the types are checked (Select All and Apply>OK).
