Hi RickCormier,

1. what version of Windows Media Player do you use?

If you are using Windows 7, you can try to run the troubleshooter of Performance or try to run the Fixit and see if it helps.

Open the troubleshooter of Performance

If you use Windows 7, try to run the Windows media player settings Troubleshooter and check.

    Hi Richard,

    If you can access the internet somehow, if you are using Vista, go to http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/06/22/reset-and-fix-broken-windows-vista-file-ext-and-type-associations-include-exe-com-sys-zip-lnk-folder-drive/ and scroll to the EXE and click or double-click it to run the program to restore EXE file associations. Once done, do the same for LNK entry. That should restore your programs. If you are using Windows 7, go to http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/19449-default-file-type-associations-restore.html . If you are using XP, go to http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm.

    If you are unable to access the internet, download files to a flash drive on a good PC, load the files on the bad PC desktop and run them.  Then restart.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Vista Sidebar and Media Player stopped working after uninstalling Mcafee and AVG installation

    Hi, I'm new to the Dell Forums, my apologies if this isn't the right place to post this.

    Yesterday, I decided to remove Mcafee completely from my Inspiron 6400 (running Vista Ultimate) and install the free version of AVG. First, I downloaded the http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=107083&lc=1033 and AVG Mcafee removal tool and was save on my desktop. I unplugged my internet connection, uninstalled Mcafee Security Center of programs & features (recommended by Mcafee), rebooted, then ran Mcafee Removal Tool Development. EXE, rebooted, installed the free version of AVG, went online and installed the AVG updates, performed a full scan with no errors. The system seems to work well, but then I noticed that the clock on Windows Sidebar gadget turned black, the deleted with only a yellow box calendar gadget. I tried to open Media Player, no luck because he would not just open. Tried to launch Media Player as an admin, no luck. While my connection is an admin one. There is another connection admin account so connected to this account, but you have the same problem. I did a system restore and also tried to create new accounts, but the same thing happens with the Gadgets and Media Player. I also ran startup repair by using the Vista DVD, no luck.

    Did somebody encountered this problem? There is an almost similar post under Vista (http://www.dellcommunity.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=vista&message.id=41524&query.id=225388#M41524), but no solution. I had a feeling this uninstallation of Mcafee or running the Development. EXE may have messed up with the registry keys for the sidebar and Media Player. I also downloaded another gadget clock, no luck. Y at - it a fix for this? I don't want to install Mcafee again, as I had many problems with MCProxy and Spamkiller causing system crash and Mcafee has no solution so far. I also have spybot running on the system.

    I would appreciate if someone could help me with this. Thank you

    =========================================
    More likely, you have Movie Maker and just
    can't find it.

    Try the following steps...

    Reach... Start button / run...

    Type or paste the following text in the box run:

    Moviemk.exe

    Then press on... Come in.

    If Movie Maker is on your system... He's going to start.

    Windows Movie Maker 2.1 XP cannot change one. MP4 file...
    It would need to be converted to WMV format before
    import.

    Different are many times the retail converters and freeware
    available on the net...

    The following freeware converter is an example.
