Nope.

You may, but a reinstall/repair will just deal with Windows stuff.

Besides, if you do, what's the big deal? You have a copy of all your drivers, right? If the reinstall puts on a default graphics driver or something, just reload the driver.

This is potato work, dude. Running a Windows reinstall isn't rocket science or difficult. Make sure you have what you need before you start, backup your important files, and then do it. Allot some time from your day (about 2 hours) and have-at-it.

try installing an older version of media player (version seven, eight or nine). if that fails, look for registry hacks to remove version 10.

i would still suggest ditching MS media player and using a different one (kinda like what everyone's currently doing with their browser) such as... http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
ive had good luck with it
