    ok.. here is the thing... first i started getting the error that windows media player is not installed corectly, some wmp.dll problem, and i googled it, found a soulution, to uninstal wmp 12 and install 11.. i tried it the folowing steps:

    first turned off the windows media center features... than did folowing:

    1. Run services.msc
    Stop the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service.

    2. Take ownership of these files

    => All files in "Program Files\Windows Media Player\" folder
    => All files starting with "wmp" in System32 folder
    => wmploc.dll.mui in "Sytem32\en-us\" folder

    3. Run the installer for wmp11...

    4. Before u reboot, open regedit and delete this key
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\Installed Versions"

    5. Reboot

    when my lap bootet back up, i could not find wmp installed anywhere now :S and i could not enable it back in featuers, i tried to reinstal the 11, but same thing after reboot, cant find it on my laptop... than i tried to run it manualy in c program files, but in vain, saiz that it is not installed on my laptop, and i need to reinstal..

    and now when i try to reenable it in windows featuers, i get a BSOD.... :/

    help? tnx! :)
