Which OS are you using? How did you reinstall it?

What kind of files are playing (if any) when it shuts down on its own? Where did you download them from?

Does using another media player like VLC click here to play the same files cause similar (VLC shuts down on its own) problems? G

Reinstall WMP over itself:

To do this, shut down all instances of the player, including disabling it in the Toolbars (right-click the taskbar > Toolbars > untick Windows Media Player in the list (if present & ticked).

Next, navigate to C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player & double-click on the setup_wm file to reinstall it over itself.

Finally, reboot (preferably) your PC & check to see if the problem persist. G

Try Microsoft's Forums - e.g. someone has posted a similar problem with WMP in Win7 click here.

This is the WinXP section click here, & I think Programs is the relevant sub-section to post in(?)

In order to post there you'll need to create a Windows Live Login click here. Then Sign In at click here.

All the best. G

On second thoughts, I think 'Music & sounds' is the correct sub-section to post in click here. G
