    This is an ongoing problem that is annoying the hell out of me. When I click on a media link such as MPG or WMV file, Windows Media Player Opens but its non-responding undefinetely. Task Manager shows the process is sucking memory and cpu... If I Save this movie to hard disk and open it, it plays fine... I have scoured all forums for a clean and would like to save a machine rebuild.

    I have reset helper defaults..

    Toshiba Laptop
    XP Pro SP2
    Wireless Connection (have tried ethernet as well)
    IE7 or Firefox
    512mb RAM
    WMPlayer 9-11

    Thanks for any clues in advance!
