    Unable to reinstall the Windows Media Player on Windows 7.

    The Windows media player on my Windows 7 computer is corrupted and from the Control Panel I have uninstalled it restarted the machine to apply the effects and again tried to reinstall the same from same location, but this time I won't get it as done. Nothing happens when I check the checkbox of Windows Media Player and click on Apply changes.
