Either format & re-install your OS.
Or get this tool instead - http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite..._Codec_Pack.htm
(remember to install the specific codecs you want, during setup)

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.
