    use mpg working before you installed something and now its not?

    perhaps you need to update your codec package, k-lite is the best out there, it is very complete, very good and includes some nice players as well.

    link:Download K-Lite Codec Pack

    download the pack that is right for you , basic, standard, full or mega, and if you are 64bit you should also download the 64bit pack.

    I'd install Media Player Classic Home Cinema (Also known as MPC-HC) or even VLC and be done with it. Microsoft's default movie players have always been lackluster when it comes to playing formats. It is no different this time; in fact it plays even less formats with the removal of DVD and apparently older formats like your MPG.
