    with that error is there any other info that you can give us also if you have your xp cd...go to start run and type sfc /scannow. that command will rewrite any corrupt xp sys files.

    Did you reboot after reinstalling it?

    Did you try deleting the folder before re-installing???
    Uninstall, then delete the folder X:\Program Files\Windows Media Player (where X is your system drive, usually C)
    and then re-install

    I agree with Dehc. Delete the WMP folder and re-install WMP9 (get it from MS website).

    Alt. try to System Restore to a point where you are sure it was working.

    if you backed up files before you installed the windows media player 9 edition, you can go back to the original version that was released with XP.

    If none of that works, including DEHC's suggestion, you can always try a system restore, if possible.
