    Does your WMP suddenly close?


    I've had this issue always ever since I installed 8.1, across my 100 formats that I've done, every single one of them had this issue. When I play an MP3, it would run fine for about 30 seconds or so, then suddenly WMP would say it encountered an error and would close.

    Now I can simply switch to another MP3 Player sch as AIMP3 but I would like to know why is this happening?

    Do j00 guys face the same i$$u3?

    Someone at MDL forums gave me this hotfix, it is supposed to fix many issues but the KB Article has gone missing, anyway, I installed it, let's see:
