    Hi all - I had been having this issue myself for some time. It started just after I installed my Nero 7 Essentials. I have found a fix for this problem, and you won't have to uninstall anything to make it work. I noticed that this problem only happened with AVI files. A quick search for AVI Codecs led me to the address below. This fix does work. Before installing it I would always get that error message, programs would shut down or just freeze, stuff like that. Now, when I open my WMP (11) all of the previews open immediately, and -- no error messages. Even my video editing tools work again.
    So, here it is. Download whichever you need - MAC or Windows, install it, reboot your computer -- and enjoy. Good luck to everyone, and see you around.

    Had the same problem with the Com Surrogate Error constantly popping up when ever I used my WMP. Deleting Urge took care of the problem. Just went to the Add/Remove.(y)
