How to fix Window Media Player? Answered

I try to launch files that would autoplay with WMP, and nothing happens. Not even an error message. The same thing happens when I launch the exe of WMP. However, it will work if I run it as administrator. Then I can just Ctrl+O my files. It would just be more convenient if I didn't have to do this every time. Any help/idea of what's wrong?

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling it? You can uninstall from Control Panel -> Add / Remove Programs, then download a new version from the Microsoft web site.
