    dere,
    Just make sure that the path of the media file that you want to listen or watch is correct. If you've deleted the media file but the playlist is pointing it to the missing file, Windows Media Player won't be able to play the file. Browse for the current location and try playing it again....
    hope this will help...

    Hi,

    The Windows Media Player`s unresponsiveness can be of the reason of Error in Registry entry which can be corrected by editing Registry.

    Most of the time it works but sometimes registry edit fails to provide the desired result.

    You need to clean the system for virus presence which can corrupt the files related to WMP.

    The last option is to install the Windows Media Player afresh, to do that you need to log in to the Microsoft.com and download a compatible WMP to your computer and install the software.

    This will surely solve the problem.

    Thanks.
