    WMP 11 will not launch at executable but will launch when a file or video is
    clicked on directly. I have uninstalled the program a few times, deleted WMP
    from the program files, cleared it's prefetch file.... and still gets the
    same results. I am not sure if it something i the prefetch or in the registry
    keys that I may have accidentally touched, but I could use some help soon.

    btw... it's not just WMP, it's actually affecting most of my media players,
    like itunes and winamp. I did the same for those as well with the same
    results. All my other programs run fine during executables, just not my media

    I have the exact same problem. I can't get an audio link or video link to
    launch the player. i have to download the audio or video into a folder first
    before it will play. There seems to be a problem with vista & the media
    player. i never had this problem with xp.

    Could you define "at executable"? What are you doing that you define in
    that fashion?
