When I finished formatting my computer a few months ago and ran all of my programs to get the most recent upgrade, something interupted the wmp update and it stopped (can't remember why) anyway whenever I run the update now it says it's the most recent build, but I know it's not(10) because I don't have many of the features that come with wmp10, is there anyway I can manually update it or reinstall or something
Get Windows Media Player 11 (as stated above). If not, I'll find you a WMP10 download link.
You can download WMP10 from here if you don't want, or don't like WMP11. I would go with 11 though, if only for the much nicer interface.
Anyway Media Player Classic is much more cool
