    Windows Media Player Crashed After The Latest Update


    After an update to Windows 10 on my desktop, Windows media player opens for 4 or 5 seconds & closes. Prior to the update, the media player performed as it should. I tried to do a system restore to a date prior to the update & got an error message that the system restore failed because of a problem with the restore point itself. I was going to try again with a different restore point & found that all restore points prior to the update have been deleted.


    Anyway, how do I fix or reinstall windows media player?

    :)

    New Windows Media Player Plugin for Firefox

    Anyone who uses Windows Vista and Mozilla Firefox may be pleased to hear that the Windows Media Player team has now released a plugin for Firefox that should allow the browser to play WMP content on websites. Here are the steps to get it working:
    • Installation of the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin may require administrative access to your PC. It is recommended that you close all other open browser windows before continuing with the installation.
    • Click the Install button to automatically download and install the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin.
    • Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Install to install the plugin.
    There is a known issue if you are using Firefox version 2.0.0.3 on Windows Vista with the installer failing with error code -203. To work around this simply restart Firefox (you will get a notification that Windows Vista will be changing the Firefox compatibility settings) and then install again - the second time should succeed.

    The download is available here, and the new plugin works on all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista (although it is mostly intended for Vista, as that currently has no WMP support in Firefox).
