Reinstall/Repair WMP

I got a virus which I was successfully able to remove from my system but now Windows Media Player doesn't work.
I get the following error:


Clicking yes just takes me to their website where there isn't a version of WMP for Vista, only for XP.

From what I've found there isn't a way to reinstall WMP for Vista. Is there a way to repair this error?

Neither Vista nor 7 allow uninstalling/reinstalling WMP in the traditional
sense, and MS does not offer a download to install over WMP. The only thing
you can try is going to Programs and Features and select "Turn Windows
features on or off". Turn WMP off, reboot, and turn it back on. I doubt it
will help, but the alternative is to do an in-place install, so it is worth
trying.
