Windows Media Player corrupt files

I have been doing a lot of reading on this issue and everything states that Windows Media Player 11 on Vista is embedded in the OS.  Is this true? and if so is there no other way to repair corrupt Windows Media Player files other than a restore?  I have booted from the Vista CD and when i click on repair windows it takes me straight to the system restore app.

Any ideas?

Hi! I don't have vista, but I guess you can uninstall the WMP-11 this way-
You could potentially run something like this from an administrative command
for %a in (%systemroot%\system32\wm*.dll) do regsvr32 /s %a
Also, this link provides gr8 article on WMP tweaks-http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html
Go thru it and follow at ur own risk!!!
