    What does your system logs say? You should see some reference to it in either the application log or system log. Most likely in the application log.

    BTW: What version of Windows and what version of media player?
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    It sounds like something's been corrupted in your Windows Media Player. First try reinstalling it. If that doesn't work, I know there are sometimes problems with Windows Media Audio and Video files and various codecs floating around. For instance, an old version of a specific divx codec would cause Windows Movie Maker to crash whenever a client tried to add audio. Have you installed any codecs? If so, try uninstalling those. That may fix the problem.

    My recommendation. Uninstall all the codecs and install K-Lite Codec Pack (http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...Codec_Pack.htm). I personally haven't had any problems with any of the codecs installed by it, nor have I run into a movie that couldn't be played.
