Download wmpvis.dll to your desktop.

Close all applications and windows.
Go to Computer > C drive > Programs Files > Windows Media Player
Copy and paste the wmpvis.dll file here. Click on "Yes" to replace the existing one.
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Right click on "Command Prompt" and click on "Run as Administrator"
At the command prompt type the following command and press the Enter key.

regsvr32 C:\Program files\Windows Media Player\wmpvis.dll

There is a space between regsvr32 and C:\...

Then check if Visualization works or not.
