Have you tried reinstalling the latest version of Windows Media Player?

You can download it from

You might also need to register the DLL for Windows to recognize it. And it might go in the Windows system32 (not system) folder. Just Google "registering dll" to get instructions on how to do that.

And as Blake said, you may just want to reinstall WMP.

Go to Google and search for WMASF.DLL download. Choose a site then download the DLL file,and pest your system 32 folder and your problem should be solved or Go to Start → Run... (or press the Windows key with R) and type in the following and press the Enter key: sfc /scannow This should replace any damaged system files.
