you might need some codecs download the divx codec then the klite mega codec pack and see if that works or just download the new wmplayer 10 from microsoft.com. But i would think it is a codec problem if your video files are avi then you probably need divx or xvid

use different player like winamp bsplayer or real one and if u say that you dont like those players then you are going to be stuck with a useless wmplayer

If you have winxp

The best think about winxp and it was turned off ,yeah your screwed!
No actually you could uninstall it and reinstall it .can't you !:)
Go to control panel /add/remove programs /on the left side click on add/remove windows components /scroll down and uncheck media olayer ,OK ,your way out to remove it .
then go and redownload and install media player .Get an older version here [http://oldversion.com/ Maybe 7.1 ,see if that works if tes keep it if no ,go to windows update and update it again maybe something went wrong last time you updated it !

omg just get winamp or bsplayer or something that works. also i would try to turn system restore. And you shouldnt have gotten ten it is a beta.

well in retrospect i metioned it but it sounds like you cannot operate 10 and should just system restore or get a new player.

10 is Beta and you run the risk of problems with beta programs .Did you try reinstalling it ,sometimes with a program installed allready it will give you otions ,either Fix ,install or uninstall .
WMP 10 probably comes with out the uninstall option!!!!

You should not be loading Beta versions on your computer with out system restore turned on!

EDIT : You are not the only person trying to remove it either !just do a google search .Check the links out on the site .
