  • For Vista issue, I suggest using the "Windows Vista" Forum which would be the more relevant forums for your question.




    To reinstall Windows Media in Windows 7, you can try the following steps:


    1. Open Control Panel/Programs and Features.

    2. Click "Turn Windows features on or off" in the left pane.

    3. Expand "Media Features", uncheck "Windows Media Player". Click "Yes" to continue, and click OK to quit. Then Restart.


    Note: If you turn off WMP, Windows Media Center will be turned off either. You may need to re-configure settings for Windows Media Center after re-enabling it.


    4. Open "Turn Windows features on or off" again. Turn on the features "Windows Media Player" and "Windows Media Center". Restart.
