removing WMP 10, having lost previous system restores

  1. Yep that is right, apart from formatting my hard drive, how on earth can I
    sort this mess out? WMP never runs now, since I updated from WMP 9. It always
    says it has encountered a problem. Also at the same time my WIN DVD OEM
    stopped working and would say more or less the same message, so I guess this
    is a major registry blip. I am dissapointed that MS have not allowed for
    reinstallation of WMP9. I tried a few restores, but they never worked. Then
    after trying for a few days, all the restore dates were wiped off... Figure

    Thanks for any help out there

    When done see if you can re-install WMP10 if you'd like.
