Windows media player will not open RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have used media player a while ago to upload some CDs. Today it will not open (from desktop shortcut or program file location). I believe I had version 9. I just recently upgraded to version 11. Still nothing. I can not uninstall the program - message is that "media player needs to be closed" - it is not running. I am not very good with troubleshooting or understanding how the program structure works. My computer skills are very basic.

    Where to start? Any suggestions?

     

    Thanks

  • Have you tried Ending the Process

     

    this can be done by typing Ctrl + alt + Delete and clicking Start task manager click the processes tab and scroll down until you see WMPlayer.exe and click End Process Click yes/continue for any messages that pop up this will end the program completely on all user accounts across the system allowing you to restart it whenever
