    Windows Media Player first start creator loop

    I have problem with WMP on my Windows 8.1 Pro x64.
    There is creator on first start... yep, but I have "loop" with this creator and can't use WMP.

    I recorded video with that issue:
    Windows Media Player creator loop - YouTube

    1. System is up-to-date
    2. There is no malware
    3. I tried disable and re-enable WMP on programs & features

    What can I do?

    Windows 7 Ultimate/Windows 8.1 Update Pro with Media Center/Windows Technical Preview [All 64-bit]

    Such a very strange issue out there... do you really need WMP? There are other options for Media Players... for me I mostly use Zune!!!
