I have Windows 10 professional,

C:\Users\bdimych>reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\>{22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95}"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\>{22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95}
    (Default)    REG_SZ    Microsoft Windows Media Player
    ComponentID    REG_SZ    WMPACCESS
    DontAsk    REG_DWORD    0x2

there is also normal key without ">"

C:\Users\bdimych>reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95}"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95}
    (Default)    REG_SZ    Microsoft Windows Media Player 12.0

    Locale    REG_SZ    EN
    Version    REG_SZ    12,0,10011,16384

I suspect MS Anniversary Update,
what do you think?

this is not advertisement, I installed PCC just yesterday for interest,
Windows Defender and MBAB don't see any threats
