    i had to restore my system, xp pro, to an earlier date and now when i try to open Windows Media Player i get this message:

    "the file wmp.dll has a version number of 9.0.0.2980 where 9.0.0.3075 was expected. Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled."

    before going to microsofts website do i have to uninstall Media Player on my system first? done in the add/remove programs in the control panel.

    ok, i'm not tech savy but any info will be appreciated. thanks in advance. :)

    i just downloaded Media Player again. after it downloaded it told me to exit Media Player (i didn't have it running to begin with) and other applications for the set up wizard. i closed everything out and continued with the set up but i still get the same message when i try to open Media Player.
