Discus and support "Server execution failed" Every time I try to play an mp3 in Windows 10 Support to solve the problem; I am unable to play ANY media files whatsoever on Windows 10!

  1. "Server execution failed" Every time I try to play an mp3


    I am unable to play ANY media files whatsoever on Windows 10! Every time I try, I always get "Server execution failed" No matter what file it is.

    Googling around suggests that this is a Windows Explorer problem but the only fix it offers did not work! I am still getting "Server execution failed" when I try to play a .mp3, .wav, or a .mp4 file!

    How do I fix this?

    :)

    Server Execution Failed

    Have you tried adding Administrator to Local Users & Group.This has fixed some people's problem with "Server Execution Failed",but I think they were also getting a warning in event viewer - the error 7023 "The Network List Service service
    terminated with the following error: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service."

    Fix taken from here -

  4. "Server execution failed" Every time I try to play an mp3

    receiving error: server execution failed

    My computer kept wanting to finish a virus protection something by restarting. That did not seem unusual and while I had put it off a number of times I finally clicked "now". A few hours later I came back to the computer and nothing would open. Anything
    I tried to open either said "server execution failed" or appeared to open and then disappeared. It just flashed on like it was going to open and then disappeared. I can see all apps when I click on windows button and the full list of options when I right click.
    Can't type anything in search. Task manager brings me nowhere and change users takes me to my log-in. What do I do???
