How to Enable Subtitles in Windows Media Player 12

Windows media player 12 is not playing subtitles like srt, sub etc. even if we install Direct VobSub. And Wehave to rename a system file called mfpmp.exe, present in C:\Windows\System32. But we need to take ownership of the file in order to rename it. Otherwise it shows the error message below.

Step 1: Open command prompt (Press Start+R, Type cmd andHit  Enter).

  Step 2: In command prompt, type: takeown /f C:\Windows\System32\mfpmp.exe
               and press Enter

Step 3:Type: icacls C:\Windows\System32\mfpmp.exe /grant (user name): F and hit Enter

Step 4:  Reboot the System,and now you should be able to delete or modify the file. 
if it gives error  try renaming the file to anything else then mfpmp.exe as shown below.
