    Try closing all running applications (to clear the taskbar).
    Then open WMP, right-click an empty area on the taskbar and
    select the option to "Cascade Windows".

    And if that does not solve the problem, try closing WMP. Then
    lower your graphics hardware acceleration setting to the basic
    accelerations setting. And then run wmplayer.exe and try to
    maximize it. To lower the hardware acceleration setting:

    - Open Display Properties in Control Panel.
    - On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
    - On the Troubleshooting tab, move the Hardware acceleration
    slider one notch to the right of None.

    And if the above does not solve the problem you can find
    peer-to-peer support for Windows Media Player Technologies
    in the following newsgroup:

    microsoft.public.windowsmedia.player
