    I was wondering this too, the other day all my movies started playing in Black and White!, i couldnt find an uninstall/reinstall option, in the end I ran system restore and went back a few days and then it worked fine, so you could try system restore

    Start Menu >> Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools

    I think you may be stuck doing a repair installation. I was looking at that 'sysoc.inf' hack and media player gets listed in the add/remove windows components, but I'm pretty sure it's for the old one, mplayer2.exe, that's found in the X:\Program Files\Windows Media Player folder.

    I was just messing around in that folder [X:\Program Files\Windows Media Player] and found the file 'setup_wm.exe.' I launched it and it looks like the installation program for media player... give that a try.

    Update, yeah, it gives you the option to 'reinstall all components.'

    Newer update... I tried to run it... it went to the internet and then told me I already had it... it didn't do squat, sorry.
