WMP 11 freezing

  joe95 13:31 26 Feb 2010

for the last 3 or 4 wks WMP 11 starts up okay usually in library and plays my music files okay but as soon as I click "now playing" it freezes completely and can't anything but switch off.I have Googled the problem and it seems to be a problem for a lot of people but no real solution, some say delve into registry find this and that but not confident to do that.
Would appreciate any help.
running Windows xp with all the updates and service packs.
have uninstalled,restored etc.

I had so many problems with WMP 11 I took it off and reinstalled WMP 10 which works great

Google for downloads of older versions of WMP

Its a codec problem.
Install the latest codecs

Thanks,I've tried re-installing all WMPs but had problems, but on trying the codec one I've found that there is no tool bar in the options although it is ticked.
