Yes...I know it was a beta and all the cautions that come with it so spare the "I told ya so's....." LOL!

Anyway, after installin teh WMP 9 beta 2 weeks ago, it worked great for a week, but NOW it won't play ANY type of format....keeps giving me "unknown format" errors for EVERYTHING....MPG, AVI, ASF and even MP3 !!

Anyway....anyone have a link for the 9 beta, lost mine. or at least some way of uninstalling it....let me guess...I CAN'T uninstall it, right ?!?!

If system restore is not avaliable to you - the only other quick way to fix it is to delete the wmplayer.exe file from the root:\programfiles\windows media player\ folder
then you need to boot your machine to the WinXP CD and select repair

Exactly how DO you use repair?!

I've tried in the past when I first got XP, and something corrupted a system32 file, but was NEVER able to get Repair running....which would be GREAT, just so I have that extra ability to keep this OS running clean and smoooooth!!! This is the first OS in which I've had the SAME install running for almost a year...with no need to format for some stupid problem !!!

LOL!!

Thanx guys !!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
