I'm not exactly sure whats wrong with my Windows Media Player when I go to watch say an embedded video on a website I always get this error message "Can Not Create DirectShow Player". I don't know why this happens but I've googled it and various sites have said to reinstall Windows Media Player and so I have but nothing has changed. I had this problem in the past and I try reinstalling then too but nothing happened and my WMP is just a mess now. When I go to open WMP nothing happens at all...any help is appreciated =)

EDIT: Also just noticed it doesn't work on my user but on another user it does...weird =/
