After many months of using Windows Media Player 10 without any problems, I cannot open the media player. When I click on the icon, the bar shows up in the task bar, and the audio starts to play, however, the view portion does not open. I can minimize the viewer into the taskbar, and control the audio settings, but when I hit restore or maximize nothing happens. I tried uninstalling WMP10, but it just rolled it back to WMP9, and it has the same problems. What can I do?

The only update they want me to install is WMP 10, but I was hoping to completly uninstall all WMP prior to re-installing WMP 10. Right now, when I tried to remove WMP10, it just rolled back to WMP9 and still has the same problem. What do you think?

Here is what I would do. Reinstall wmp 9, which automatically chooses the "reinstall all mode", whereas wmp seems to try to attempt a repair.

get it here

Then install wmp10

If that fails, it is likely not a wmp issue, but a winxp issue where wmp cannot integrate properly with your installation. A windows repair would be a good option at that point.
