technically not unless you find a listing of all the Keys in the registry. My
friend Michael had a problem with Windows Media Player running and now after
editing a few Keys in HKCU and HKLM regarding WMP11 playback history his
WMP11 functions AOK again. I was prompted to run System File Checker first so
we did that, also removed his best copy of QuickTime and iTunes but he
installed irfanview to playback media and run images before I fixed his WMP11
and its still installed and no problems clicking Open Other and selecting
WMP11 instead of irfanview. I thought he might be interested in installing a
new player, I got one named GOM [Gomplayer v126.96.36.19983] for more info go to http://www.gomplayer.com/
then clisk Download. GOM Player is really quite a
unique player is supported in Vista has built-in codec support (AVI, DAT,
MPEG, XviD, DivX, FLV1, AC3, OGG, MP4, H263, SMI, SRT, RT, SUB(with IDX)
files for subtitle, M3U, PLS, ASX, WMV, ASF, and has a Screen Capture
built-in for up to 999 shots) plus has skins and a feature to make your own
skins as well.
Good luck with your WMP11 repairs. I got Michaels under control, now he has
time to look for his Quicktime and he's never going to install iTunes again
cause it screws up Quicktime with its updating services for iTunes making
Quicktime impossible to locate on the HD following a update.
Hey, folks I am greatly satisfied with the results my friend had made to
this system, It never made me wonder for one minute how and why it happens to
foul up WMP11 since there is a Bad Bug in the programming I figure Microsoft
needs to make some altercations to their SP1 and SP2 whenever they get time
before they forget to so that when a file is played from a USB HD and then
the USB HD is removed and no file exists that WMP11 will not shutdown and not
function. We figure this is what the Bug did and its a serious problem for
teenagers all over the world, I figure that the system needs to identify to
WMP11 that a HD is a plugin USB type and to delete the RecentFileList entry
upon exit so that the Bug will never showup again. Take this as a hint,
Microsoft has no media player that is embedded, this system has a copy of it
in Program Files and it can be removed if you got something setup to run in
the place of a player for the system sounds Windows Vista will not try
reinstalling its included version from disc on bootup, otherwise this will
occur. I know what I am saying because I removed the modem hardware and
deleted the software for the v.92 modem and had to remove the Keys in the
registry myself because Vista fails to remove Keys on uninstalled programs. I
had to do the same for iTunes and Quicktime. All is AOK right now so get
Microsoft hopping to the TechLab to fix these Bad Bugs immediately so we can
see a Happy New Year with at least a SP1 issue rexolved.
