>> Stay informed about: Media Player
The update cannot still be running!
what may have happened is that you have a slightly corrupted registry, or a
'stuck' WININIT.INI file....
Your %1/%2 error is caused usually by Norton LiveUpdate, corrupting the
System Restore archive - although there are other possible causes.
Do a Search for the file WININIT.INI - if you find it, then rename it to
WININIT.JNK, and reboot - your problem should be gone.
If you don't find it, then try this - Start|Run - enter SCANREG /FIX into
the dialog box, and click OK - windows will reboot - see if that fixes it.
WMP cannot be uninstalled - you have to use System Restore for that (which
you would have known if you had read the installation instructions!)
