Windows Media Player just quits RRS feed

  • General discussion



    Let me begin by saying that this is my first post and it took me fifteen minutes to figure out how to create my own thread.  Maybe its me.;-)


    Currently, I am unable to watch downloaded material because WMP simply says that it has encountered a problem, not really specifying which, and must shut down; assures me that Microsoft will be notified of the problem and offers me a polite apology in case I lose any unsaved data.  The download is successful and the file is saved but when I try to open it with say another media player, Windows explorer tells me that it also has encountered a problem and must shut down. 


    While it's not the end of the world, this should work right?  a perfectly normal activity?  My manga obsession depends on it!  I can't even open the downloaded video and their is no clear indication as to the source of the problem.  I'm simply asked if I would like to send the "error messages" then the programs shut down.   I'm thinking I should reinstall Windows XP entirely.  (There seem to be a number of smaller issues with its functioning properly.)


    Any suggestions?
