When i attempt to play music on any program, wmp, itunes, quintessential etc, i get a pop-up saying that somethings gone wrong and i can debug, send an error report or dont send an error report. The music still plays, but this pop-up gets in the way, and hinders my general usage!

I viewed what the problem was, and it said under error signature:
AppName: wmplayer.exe AppVer: 10.0.0.3802 ModName: wmvcore.dll
ModVer: 11.0.5358.4827 Offset: 000f2b22

The dll is corrupted. i found a new one, but when i try to replace the .dll it claims i need a password to replace it.

I tried all the passwords i know, but this is a refurbished computer.

I was wondering whether there is a way to get round the password thing, or just anything to get rid of the pop-up and fix the players!?

Thanks a lot

Dan

You could do a repair install which would return XP to pre SP2 / MP10 etc, it would leave your data and programmes intact

You can use this guide to repair XP

Possibly, you will need to press the start button and keep tapping the delete key, (possibly F2) until the PC enters set up. Change the boot order to CD ROM Drive then hard drive, press F10 then press enter, load the XP CD then type Y then press enter, as it reboots, look for press any key to load from CD, press enter

You will need the XP product key to complete this

If you have audio / video files which are subject to DRM you should check with the provider for known issues with performing an XP repair install


XP Repair Install

Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update
