[jaws-uk] Re: Repairing Windows Media Player

George, thanks for that.

I checked the site to be told that I'm running the beta of WMP11. I'm 
wondering if this could be the problem since it's a beta. Anyway, I 
downloaded and saved it again in case it would make a difference overwriting 
it?

The other alternative is to download version 10 and substitute this but I 
don't know if I'd first have to uninstall the beta 11.

Aren't computers fun!

Anyway, I might ask a sighted friend for help, unless you can advise me 
here?

Thanks again.

Best wishes,

Joan.
