    Whats the OS e.g. XP ?
    Are the skin files in the '<WMP>\Skins' folder and do you have access rights?
    Download Registry Monitor from www.sysinternals.com

    Re-download and install WMP 9 and that should fix it.

    Direct links:

    WMP 9 Series (for Windows XP) | WMP 9 Series (for Windows 98 SE, Me, and 2000)

    NOTE: when you have reinstalled it,go to Windows Update to grab any WMP patches that may be available.

    Do you mean you want Media Player to minimize like this?

    I would suggest to get rid of wmp9, ie forget about it, and install quintessential player ->see my sig . Take a couple of days to get accustomed with the new mediaplayer and you wont regret it
    Get Quintessential player, the alternative to winamp! ( www.quinnware.com )

    What Quintessential Player is one of if not the best players I also like Winamp 291.

    I haven't used WMP in at least 2 years.

    I agree, Quin player is awesome! I've just recently started using it and love it more than Winamp.

    Is there a blank space on your toolbar that looks like the WMP in mini mode would fit in? When you right click on your taskbar and select toolbars, do you see the media player option? What is it not doing exactly?

    edit
    I also found this on another site:

    I got mine to work last night after about an hour of messing with it.
    What I did was to uninstall both HOTFIX's and then I went to Microsoft downloads and redownloaded the entire thing again and reinstalled it. this worked, DO NOOT USE THE WINDOWS UPDATE VERSION of WMP9 it doesn't work this was from the microsoft downloads site itself.
    GOOD LUCK!!
