Windows Media Player 9 just stopped working

by tofubrain / February 23, 2004 7:19 PM PST

When I try to open Windows Media player 9 (on my Windows ME) all I get is an error message that reads "An internal application error has occurred" I downloaded the program again from Microsoft, but the problem did not go away. What can I do?
Thanks, Steve B.

Read http://www.nwlink.com/~zachd/pss/pss.html and see if you can remove it and re-install the version that worked.

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?
