Hi,

Try reinstalling windows media player if you can't find it online or don't trust other sites then try downloading from microsoft site it is much desirable to loose the files as your windows media files are corrupted any music saved there may be lost but can't confirm about this.This may happen or not but if you don't want to loose the data its better save them in a hardcopy and try to download from the microsoft site this will work.

Nope, reinstalling Windows Media Player will not affect any of your music files on your computer. Though you cannot literally uninstall and install back Windows Media Player, reinstalling this component in Microsoft Windows is just like with Microsoft Office where you disable or remove a feature.

To try to reinstall Windows Media Player, click “Start,” “Control Panel,” “Add or Remove Programs,” and then click “Add/Remove Windows Components” on the left pane. On the next screen, scroll down to the bottom of the list and look for “Windows Media Player.” Uncheck it then click “Next.” This will then remove Windows Media Player from your system.

After this, open your web browser and download the free version of CCleaner and install it. Once installed, start CCleaner and clean your system. Restart the computer then repeat the same steps to go to “Add/Remove Windows Components.” Here, check “Windows Media Player” then click “Next.” Try Windows Media Player again after this and see if it works.

If you want to convert CCleaner to Pro, download the codes and follow the instructions.
