I had a lil problem with my computer, and when i tried to log onto my user, it would automatically log me back out......

So i did a repair

It went ok, now when i try to open a file via windows media, it keeps giving me:

An Internal Aplication Error Has Occured....

Why is this?

Please help, thanks

Greetings Please...

I find Windows Media Player to be quite the problem child when something goes awry.

Some info please

You did the repair and the original user profile now works? Or did you create a new profile? How did you do the repair?

could you temporarily create a new user and see if the issue repeats with the new user?

WMP has several user specific files in several directories that may be corrupted


If the new profile works we know something in one of these directories is screwed up

C:\Documents and Settings\(profile name)\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player

C:\Documents and Settings\(profile name)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Media

C:\Documents and Settings\(profile name)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player

Technically, Windows Media Player cannot be removed, but I have found on more than a few occassions that manually blowing it away and reisntalling it completely will resolve the issue

Try this:
