I'm not too familiar with MCE (mine's XP Home) but this is what I'm able to do on mine-> I can't install an earlier version of WMP (obviously), but what I can do (if needed) is uninstall the WMP 11 that I updated to some months ago. Windows would then revert to using the original version that comes with my Windows XP, which is WMP 9 (I bypassed WMP 10 altogether, jumped straight from v9 to v11) Yours may revert to WMP 10 if you can roll back at all, but that may still do the trick.
Go into Add/Remove Programs. Tick "Show Updates" box at the top. If WMP 11 is listed that means you can roll back by uninstalling it. What you end up with may be WMP 9 or WMP 10, but there's a chance it will work whichever it is.

Can you get WMP to run inside IE at any other website? (try a news site like BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk

thanks for the help,its much appreciated.
I tried the rollback before I posted here and that didn't work either. Anyway,I tried WMP11 & IE on the BBC site and it didn't recognize/find the WMP. Then I noticed a box asking if I wanted to enable active X. Did that & it worked on that site. I went back to the nba.com alp signup site and this time it found the WMP and shuffled me thru to the signup page. Evidently I had active x blocked/disabled/disallowed somewhere. I don't remember blocking or disabling it in IE though I must have. Its working now anyway.
ETA Went into Internet options/Security etc and found where I did have them disabled. (insert banghead smiley here)
