That's the one, find windows media player, click the folder to highlight, click move, move it to my documents, reboot

Try to remove runtime 11

There is an advanced codec pack which will probably run MP11 with firefox

Is the version of 11 you have, the one released today or the beta

yes I have reinstalled it.....

but what I want to do is rollback to WMP 10 because there isn't a codec out for Firefox (for free anyway) nor is there a free codec out so I can play DVD's in WMP11 (to the best of my knowledge anyway)...
