Windows media player Windows 7

Windows media player 12 is not opening in windows 7.  There are no error messages and this computer did have a virus not too long ago.  I have used malwarebytes, security essentials, superantispyware, and ccleaner.  I turned the media feature off and back on but to no avail.  Other programs look to be working fine.

If still not working then create a new user account ...restart the computer and then login under the new account.... your media player should work.


Try it.
