    This error message pop-up remains coming up at whatever time I attempt on the way to open Windows Media Player. My PC had recently been installed by means of Windows 7 from Windows Vista on CD. Windows Media Player by no means functioned from the begin, when it prompt to download the windows player from windows site I clicked but it said that there were at present no accessible downloads. It has been similar to this for a month or else two at the moment, and it at a standstill does not work. I'm in reality irritated. How can I resolve this problem please let me know?
