Windows Media player not working

  no brains 13:36 06 Dec 2007


Running XP and WMP Version 11.

When I open windows media player it opens on bottom toolbar but does not show on the screen, when I right click I have the usual options "restore, minimze, close". When I minimize I get the small version on the bottom right hand side of the toll bar but cannot get the options to restore it to full size. I get to see the media playing but only in the small box.

If I go straight to my files and open they start in full screeen and again there are no options available and I can't right click, when it has finished playing it freezes pc.

Any ideas?
I have tries system restore.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling which means rolling back to 10 then up to 11 again

Mine (WMP11)has suddenly stopped paying DVD's. It used to but now won't despite uninstalling and re-installing. Rolled back to WMP10 and it works fine. Windows update keeps wanting to put WMP11 back but I've stopped it.
