Hey guys since 2 days i've been getting the above error on my Windows media player 10. I tried un-installing and re-installing it but that didn't work. I tried deleting all files from the c>programs file>windows media player folder but that also did not work.

I then thought that probably I might need to update windows so I went to Start>Programs>Window updates. This opened Internet explorer but the page goes blank. I tried copy-pasting it to opera but it tells me to goto Start>Help and Support to update it. I tried that but Help and Support won't open as well. Just for the record, Start>Search is also not working. The page opens , but the box where you fill the letters to search a file is blank. I tried taking some screenshots later but PAINT is not there in Start>Accessories.

I was also advised to do system restore but that is also not opening.

A night before this happened I got Norton Anti Virus 2003 saying that an internet program error has occured so it asked me to un-install and re-install it again. I have misplaced the cd so I instead downloaded AVG and scanned my computer later for viruses. Around 30 objects were infected and I was told that these are mainly adware so I installed Spyware blaster. Since then i've been getting these problems.

Is this all linked?Just for the record ,Everything is running very smoothly i.e.opera,winamp,a few games I have installed-EVERYTHING except all these above mentioned window components. Please help me and don't advise me to re-install Windows Xp(PRO) because I don't know how to and even once I do re-install windows I would have install plenty of drivers which I don't know how to do. It doesn't matter how complicated your solution is but unless it's not re-installing my windows i'm ready to do ANYTHING.

Help would be appreciated.

Internet Explorer is the only browser you can use to get Windows Updates (as far as I know).

Getting the updates may fix your problem with WMP.

Run these free online scans to see if they find anything else:

Go to this thread and follow the other recommendations:

Then post a hijackthis log here; hopefully we can figure out why IE isn't working.

Both links say it was not found on the server.
