Please help me,
Following problems with XP I attempted System restore. When this didn’t cure the problem I undid the restoration. However, when this was done I found that Windows Media Player had not been brought back.

In my program file I have a Windows Media exe file, but this does not open

I’ve downloaded Version 9 from the net, but when attempting to instal from the zipfile I get the message 'Extracting file failed. It is most likely caused by low memory (low disk space for swapping file) or corrupted Cabinet file'

Is there a way to cure this without re-installing XP from scratch, and losing a great deal of work/downloaded programs.

Many thanks in anticipation of a cure! reply
