    I have been through something like this:

    check your audio-video driver setting. Control Panel>System>Hardware>DeviceManager>

    Click on audio/ video node-tree, RightClick>Properties>Resource

    if you think you are missing something, you should get the new drivers..

    get the new drivers for the type of playback you need, and install it.

    Or, reinstall windows media player.

    Or, reinstall windows

    Or, install some other softwares for music and video, usually WMP will get the new driver info for the new softwares...

    hope it helps.

    I think may be a virus attacked to your computer. So i reccommend a scan on your computer with AVG 7.5 updated version. It's the best in today's market. Also i think it will be help, if you download wmp11. It's availble at microsoft.com. Thank you and i wish you a happy new year.

    Did you happen to install WinAMP recently? I did that a while back and had to reformat to get WMP working again...
