    I upgraded from vista to win 7 ultimate. When I go into MEdia Player I am not
    able to change my rip folder, nor can I manage my libraries, and now all of a
    subben all of my music is gone, the library is blank. When I click on the
    change button for the rip folder nothing happens, when I select mange music
    (or any library) from the menu, again nothing happens. How can I fix this?

    I mispoke, it's only the Music library that I cannot manage.

    If you reset the media library through Tools - Advanced - Restore media
    library, does that fix it?

    No effect.

    Try resetting the media library manually:

    - Reboot the PC.
    - Go to Start, type "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft" in the search field, and
    press Enter. The folder will open up in Windows Explorer.
    - In this folder, rename the "Media Player" folder to something like
    "Media Player old". If you can't see the folder, then it's probably
    hidden. Set Explorer to show hidden files and folders.
    - Start WMP, you should now have a clean library.

    If you create a new user account, do you get the same behaviour if you
    run WMP while logged in as the new account?

    Also, try reinstalling WMP: go to "Turn Windows features on or off" in
    the Control Panel, uncheck Windows Media Player (under Media Features),
    click OK and reboot. Then, tick the same Windows Media Player item again
    to reinstall.
