Sorry - I couldn't check its availability as I don't have Windows Media Player on my PC.

Go to this M$ page[take out space before and after // and paste into yopur browser and hit go;

http: //;en-us;828026

If you read the paper you'll see that this is only a recommended and pretty unimportant update, so nothing to worry about if you can't get it - it's just inconvenient.You could try clicking the Download link on that page which will allow you to download the update as a separate .exe which you can install manually by doubleclicking - that might get it to "take".

cheers mate

microsoft have it as a critical on thier site and as such it keeps downloading the thing which is so so annoying
I suppose i'll just have to turn off auto update and do it manually

I have recently installed media 9 could this be the problem?
