Media Player 12 is included in Windows 7 Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions. For Windows 7 N or KN editions, get the Media Feature Pack.

So, for "reloading" please open Control Panel and select Programs and Features. On the left hand panel click on Turn Windows Features on or off. Scroll down to Media Features and expand the folder. Then uncheck Windows Media Player. Click Ok and restart.
Then do the same again, this time checking Windows Media Player. Click Ok and restart.

Hope this helps.
