    Howdy,

    I've been fighting a friends computer trying to get it to install Windows Media Player. I can download it and open it, but when I get to the validation page it just freezes up. There's nothing... nada... and zip I can do about it.

    At first, I thought I had screwed up the home network, that it was interfering with it, but then I sent a vid link off the same thing too her AOL account and up popped a small (AOL?) Media Payer.

    Now, I'm wondering if AOL is somehow blocking the installation. Either way I would like to be able to use WMP for some Vids and movie making, so can anyone give me a clue as to what's up!

    TIA!

    BTW - Running windowsxp, AOL and Firefox & IE along with Itunes.
