Windows Media Player quit running for some reason, and despite my best attempts, I cannot get it up and running again. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, and nothing works. Everytime I try, I get the following error message:

"An internal application error has occured."

If anyone knows what I should do, please help.

Thanks.

Just install over the top of the version you have

No luck... still getting the error message. I've now tried: WMP 10, WMP 9, and the altered version you sent me a link to.

If the Internet Explorer local browser cache is near its specified capacity, and the Windows Media Player content is cached in the local browser cache, an internal error in Windows Media Player occurs that causes the problem that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.

That's not the same problem I was having. I cleared my internet cache just in case, but it still doesn't work. I also tried reinstalling Windows XP Service Pack 2 in case I was missing some crucial files, but even after doing that, I'm still getting the same errors.
