    Media Player May Allow Media Library Access (819639)
    Automatic update


    I downloaded this Microsoft update and every since that
    time I can't play any music. Under Control Panel/System
    properties/sound, video and game controllers/ my ESS
    Maestro PCI (WDM) has an error. It says look for better
    driver. I did that. I even went to the ESS website and
    downloaded new drivers.

    That sounds like a red herring, since that fix doesn't affect audio in any
    fashion.

    Sounds like your sound card drivers just started freaking out independently
    of WMP...

    WMP doesn't write to that area of the system, really, that controls general
    sound.
