    when i try loading WMP it sais "A problem caused the program to sto working
    correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is
    available." This has happened before with the "Halo 2" skin and i took care
    of it, but now i cant remember how i did it. Could someone please help?

  2. Try pressing CTRL + 1 keys together as quickly as possible after
    starting media player. That should switch it back to Full Mode from
    where you can disable the skin.

    You can choose skins by pressing CTRL + M to show the full menus, then
    View -> Skin Chooser to select a different skin if this one is causing
    problems

    You could alternatively go to windows explorer, Program Files /
    Windows Media Player / Skins, and double-click the Revert.wmz skin to
    start WMP in that skin mode, from where you should be able to restore
    full mode as above.

    I've tried both of those methods. The same thing happened when I clicked
    revert and nothing seems to happen when I hit "CTRL + 1". Is there another
    way to do it?

  4. As per ZachD, http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html#offscreen go to the player
    programs directory and click on any other skin than the Halo one in
    there
