    NOTHING will play, really confused.

    in media player I get an error that reads:

    Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy setings might not be correct.

    [Close] [Web Help]

    web help is worthless of course. This happens when I try to play any media file, avi to mp3 audio and video files. any ideas?

    Also, when I try to open them in NeroShowtime (my other player), It just says Error Reading file. VLC Player will play the file fine, but with no audio.
