Windows Media Player (WMP) Won’t Open – This may fix it.

by | Feb 17, 2017 | tech | 0 comments

WMP won't openI ran into a problem today I’ve never encountered. Usually when a program isn’t working, I can open the task manager, close the program, and then usually get it to open again.  This didn’t work today. I have had my version of windows installed so long and have so many programs, that it takes a long time to reboot (which is what you do when you can’t figure something out).

So before rebooting, I exited every program I had running, and went back into task manager and found a program I didn’t recognize called “Default IME“.  I looked it up.  I still don’t know what this really does (my attention span…).  Don’t really care at the moment, although I probably should being that there was some chatter on the internet that it could be a Trojan.

At any rate, I gathered that my house probably would not explode if I closed the program out, so I did and it fixed my problem; Windows Media Player (WMP) opened back up. If you run into this same behavior, here is how you may be able to fix it without a reboot.   In windows, open your task manager by clicking control (ctrl), alt, delete, and then end the process called “Default IME“.   Your WMP should now open up as it always did.

To your success,

Making an Impact Across the Globe

Every time somone turns on their computer and clicks a link in a search result, some person is making a profit.  That person is known as the middle-man.  As long as that middle-man or middle-woman is ethical, they have the best of both worlds.  Because the middle man neither has to produce the product or deliver the product; they simply connect products to buyers and earn a worry free commission.  The beautiful part of this is you can be that go-between individual from anywhere in the world where you have a computer and internet connection.
