Best of luck,
The other day I did some downloads off of Windows Update. one was for the media 9 player. Since then none of my files will play. Music, video, even radio stations and things already loaded on the player. The number for this download is kb837272. I could not find it in the add/remove section and I did a search and could not find it there either. Perhaps it is under a different name. I don't know.
If anyone could help me with this problem I would appreciate it.
I do not know if this is the problem.
I can not do a system restore because it was not turned on for some reason.
