    There were some updates deployed yesterday or the day before. Since then my
    WMP will not start at all. Any suggestions?

    Do you know what was updated?
    Can you uninstall the update(s)?
    Can you perform a system restore? The system should have made a restore
    point when you installed the update(s).

    If these don't work there is another way to go back: during boot press F8
    to get the startup menu and select the last known good configuration. This
    should roll back the system.

    Please post what you find for the benefit of others. As far as I know the
    "notify me of replies" feature does not work, so don't rely on this.
    Hope this helps...

    I found out that I also have problems with IE7 - it can't open certain sites.
    The problem has something to do with the permissions - if I start Media
    Player and IE in administrator mode they work fine, but I have to start them
    always like administrator because it is not possible to set these to start
    always in admin mode.
    Any thoughts?

    I found that it works if I run it from menu "Run as Administrator"

    It stopped working for me too. I eventually did a system restore before the
    updates and it started working again. I installed all the updates except
    KB941229 an update to Windows Media Center and it now works

    My problem was similar - the video stopped working in Full Screen mode (only
    sound). I tried uninstalling this update but it didn't help. I still have
    only audio in Full mode.
