When did this error occur, was it recent? You can try a System Restore to revert your settings when WMP was working fine. Another alternative is to download CCCP codec pack from here: http://www.cccp-project.net/ Then you can use Windows Media Player Classic. You can also download VLC player which works on nearly all formats: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html | Report abuse Reply to drifter77 Scott_D_Bowen December 6, 2012 1:19:17 PM - Make a new user account. - Check if the new user account has the problem. | Report abuse Reply to Scott_D_Bowen Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 7>Windows Media Player for Windows 7 Professional Freezing when opening> Related ressources: ForumWindows 7 media player not opening ForumWindows media player windows 7 stuck at opening media Forum"Random" freezing and lock-ups in Windows 7 64-bit / GTX 460 - Help!!!
