View Full Version : Can't open media software. ANY

23-03-2011, 04:42 PM
I wen't to Aus on holiday for 10 days, and just got back. I booted my computer, which had been shut down and turned off all that time. It booted fine, and then started a windows update. I watched a video, and shut my computer down. I restarted it the next morning, now I can't load any videos with VLC, Windows media, Realplayer, Quicktime or any other program. I can no longer start my we browser Rockmelt, and whenever I try watch a video online, ie youtube or facebook, my web browsers crash. I've tried on all 6 I have and none of them work.

I'm not sure if its from the update or not.

Is anyone else having any problems? And can anyone give me an idea on a fix?

Thanks in advance

Maybe try restoring from a System Restore point, it should be marked as one made when Windows did the update (so will restore as per before the update) - see if that fixes it... assuming you have System Restore enabled

Thanks. I was trying to do it without having to do a system restore but then realised I don't have anything new anyway so doesn't matter
