Since I have WMP 11 I cancelled the installation and searched the CD Burner XP forums for anything concerning that and Windows Media Player version 11.
What I found was a reference to WMP 10 and what it said was that they believed that there would be no need to install wmfdist.exe for WMP 10. I naturally assumed that WMP 11 would be safe in that regard as well. I then installed CD Burner XP and when I restarted my computer, there was some serious degrading on the startup music that is played. Sounded like a really bad record skipping and scratching and with the speakers cutting in and out.
I burned off a DVD to test out the program then decided that I should try and fix the sound problem.
I then uninstalled CD Burner XP and again restarted my computer. The little startup sound was back to normal but pretty much all my other sounds were still bad. Anything I listen to from .wav to .mp3 has a very noticeable stutter as if the file is having problems buffering and my games are completely screwy. Some have sound during the logo splashes and no sound during gameplay and others have no sound what-so-ever.
I have downloaded wmfdist.exe but have not installed it for fear of causing more problems.
I have run dxdiag and when I test the sound I donít even get a single sound on any of the tests, neither sound nor music.
I donít know what all other information you would need to help with this problem so if I need to give more please let me know.
I, as always, appreciate any help that you have and will give.
