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 18.104.22.16880 where 22.214.171.12475 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.
