Default Windows Media Player error

Windows Media Player has gone crazy.

I'm running XP home, I've downloaded all the updates, checked for viruses but, i'm still getting this error when I try to launch it.

"The procedure entry point GetIUMS could not be located in the dynamic link library MSDART.DLL"

When I click the "OK" box the error pops back up and I have to re-click it about 15 times before it goes away... after which, the program will crash, or my default playlist will start playing music.

I tried everything I even went into the setup utilility for the Media Player and reinstalled it over the web but, no dice.

i've downloaded similar fixes dos-patches and what have you from the internet. Most I what i've found is relevant to windows 2000. I ended up downloading WMP 9... that seems to have done the trick.
