Greetings, T_man!
  You may be able to find the files from C:\Windows\Options\Cabs or C:\Windows\Options\Install

I recently had this problem when I had a registry problem. When I tried to play an mp3 with Media Player, it said it cannot play the file because a driver was not found.

I simply redownloaded/reinstalled Windows Media Player.  After this, everything worked again! :D

This will also be useful to play CDs.  You can associate Windows Media Player with CD music files, so that it runs Windows Media Player automatically when a CD is inserted.
