My Windows Media Player does not start.

It simply doesn't open up.

I tried installing it again.

Any ideas on what else I could do?

Download Media Player Classic

it plays everything from wmv to quicktime to real media
I used to have Media Player 10, because it plays movies which need password authorization. And it plays absolutely everything.

Which one was Media Player Classic exactly? Do I search by that name?

For what? all it does is slow down your computer
1. It does NOT slow down my computer, because these programs don't start when I start my computer (unlike 95% of computers on this planet).

2. Winamp - I use for music, Itunes I use for an ipod, WMP- I use for movies, Real Player- I use for UEFA Action, Quicktime is spare. So, they're all useful.

yeah, search it by name.

It doesn't have all the ugly ads and unneessarily fat-ass buttons of WMP, and you can hide everything except the video window if need be. Maybe you won't like it, but I'm a minimalist so it's perfect for me.

Elnur, why don't you just use RealPlayer? It plays everything and I bet you can open it. :)
But is not as good as Media Player Classic, Media Player doesnt slow down comps at all, and RealPlayer was real trouble maker for me.
