Did you click the "Click here" option?

It may give more details.

If nothing works, have you tried other players, eg vlc player?

Initial thoughts...

* After you rolled back to WMP10, did you give it a try before reinstalling WMP11?

* Have you tried switching back to the default theme/skin?

* Disable the visual effects and then try playing an MP3 file.

* Go Start->Run and type in regsvr32 wmp.dll (with the space). A moment later you should receive the notice "DllRegisterServer in wmp.dll succeeded." Restart your computer and see if the issue is resolved.

Hope this helps,

You can click here to download and reinstall WMP11, which automatically reinstalls all codecs. Once completed the issue should be resolved.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
