Shutdown running processes (especially antivirus & firewall). Navigate to the location of your WMP9 install (usually) C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player. Double-click on the file setup_wm & follow the setup wizard to reinstall.
Reboot your PC on completion of reinstall, then check if it works the way you described above (does for me). G
PS - If you need to download a fresh copy of WMP9 click here.
