If u r using XP simply run SYSTEM RESTORE..if tht is anabled 4 u. Else search 4 entries 4 Windows Media Encoder in ur registry & then delete it.

well i no expert :) but u can try dis:control panel->add remove progs-> check the show updates buttonnow uninstall the player(or watever u installed) it will roll back to previous version and i hope lang. will be english only! :D hope dis works! please do reply if dis works(also if it doesn't work, then we will see other jugad for it :) ) i think it's tedious 4 one to re-install windows and other progs.
