Seems that I have a bit of a problem, and I guess that you would call this a MEDIA problem.
I am using a Gateway computer with an Intel 2.6 chip and 512 MB of ram running Windows XP SP2. I downloaded from the Internet Windows Media Player 10. I had on the computer Windows Media Player 9. Leaving online, I attempted to install version 10. I tried to install right over version 9. For some reason or another it did not work. I tried again with the same results. I checked on the Internet and I did download the correct version for Windows XP SP2.
So, I attempted to remove the version 9 and all traces of WMP, or whatever is there from C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player and just start again. I can't delete it all. I attempt to do so and it looks as if it is gone, but then it reappears. I have tried several different application programs to delete these files, with all the same results.
I attempted to install the WMP version 10 again and it starts off ok, but then I get this message;
This version of Windows Media Technologies is incompatible with this version of Windows. For more information, view the information at the Microsoft web site.
I have been to that site and downloaded the supposedly correct version 2 times and I still get the same message, 'THIS VERSION OF WINDOWS MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH THIS VERSION OF WINDOWS".
Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do now to get version 9 or 10 of WMP back on this computer and working.
I thank you for your kind assistance and remain;
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?
