    Hello Friend,

    Well, it seems to me during the update somehow the Windows Media Player has been deleted from your system. To re-install the Windows Media Player you have to go to internet and download the latest version of the Windows Media Player from there. You can also find it by visiting the microsoft website - www.microsoft.com. Now, download the software and install it to your Windows 7 Operating system. Now, play and music and listen to it using windows media player.

    bye,

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say..........................................

    1.Firstly go to the Control Panel and then to Uninstall A Program.

    2.Then you check that program is there or not there.

    3.If it is not there in the installed programs list then it may be lost accidentally.

    4.So you try to download it again and then install it.

    5.If again it is missing then it is the update problem so now you have to format your system to fix this problem.

    That's it by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    Have a nice day..............................

    Windows Media Player , being Default Media Player of Microsoft Windows never gets deleted or uninstalled,
    It simply gets deactivated, so you need to activate WMP to access it again.

    Click Start.
    Click Control Panel,
    Click Programs,
    Click Turn Windows Features On or Off,
    Turn Windows Media Player on from the list of features.
    Apply and Save.
    Exit, Reboot and check the System Desktop and Taskbar for WMP icon.

    Try them.
