Still pulling my hair out with media player 10

    I have uninstalled/ reinstalled. (and system restores)
    I have manually deleted the programme files and reinstalled from my original
    XP disc.
    I am at my wits end with MP10
    The problem..... When trying to open media player, wether double click or
    right click> open all it does is minimise to the tool bar. From there I can
    not access the media player at all, if I right click it there is no menu, I
    have tried alt, shift and P, to restore from mini mode and the only way to
    close it is from task manager> end task.
    There are no error messages or any clues!!

    Anyone have a way to restore this little problem??

    update:
    By pressing Ctrl+1 I am now able to right click and get the
    minimise/maximise close menu. When I do maximise it "flies off to the right
    of the screen and disapears and I can't see it- does this help with a
    possible solution?

    Do you get the Move option as well as minimize and maximize? If so, try to
    move it onto the visible screen.

    Thanks Mike, Move didn't work but "size" did, got enough on the screen to
    then drag the rest of it where it needed to be!!

    Problem solved? I've seen apps that get mixed up and think their initial
    position is off the screen like that. Maybe that is what happened.
