Pink Screen when playing .WMV files.

Fix Pink Playback Issue

After an upgrade to windows 10 I began experiencing Pink Screens when playing back .wmv files.  Media Player seemed to be working fine with other types of files. After a little searching I found 1 issue online and the 2nd I discovered on my own.
