    Hi,

    I installed Windows media player 10 a couple of weeks ago everything was fine for two hours and then there seemed to be a problem as it wouldnt play any files. It said "Windows media player has encountered a problem and needs to close" then the program closed, it sayes this everytime i tried to play a file

    So I rolled back to WMP 8 (using add remove programs) to which came with my system but is still wont let me play anything as this message still comes up when trying to play a file.

    I have tried to reinstall both versions 10 and 9 but they will not install as when i am trying to install that message keeps coming back.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what to do (i tried doing a system restore but for some odd reason my machine wouldnt allow me to do it)

    Its just for the last two weeks i have been using Zoomplayer as an alternitive but today i wanted to watch an adultbouncer movie and i couldnt because it needs DMS to play i did try but i couldnt get zoom player to play it (it is the version that should play DMS but like i say i couldnt get it to play), so it looks like WMP is the only thing that will play these types of files.

    Thanks for any help you can provide

    An incorrect version of the Wmpui.dll file is registered on your computer. This may occur when you install some third-party programs.
    RESOLUTION
    To resolve this issue, register the correct Wmpui.dll file again:

    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK:

    regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\system32\wmpui.dll
    You receive a message that is similar to:

    DllRegisterServer in C:\WINNT\system32\wmpui.dll succeeded.
    3. Click OK, and then start Windows Media Player again.

    I guess Windows thinks Zoom Player should be the media player.

    I found a link to a similar problem.

    Tech Support guys
