I have erealplayer and windows media player installed on my xp pro machine. I downloaded some movies. But they cannot be opened. Its either that there's no sound or there's no picture or both. But the timer is still moving. I tried downloading dixv pro. But still the same problem. I am sure my system have not hang. Any cure for this?

It would help a great deal to know what format the movies are in.

If they're truly AVI format, I'd question how they were encoded, it may not be a problem on your end. have you taken them to another machine and tried them?

How were these movies created? By chance with a Logitch Clicksmart 510?

I found a couple of good fixes for movies that wouldnt play in media player, even though I had divx installed. One is called "Avi Preview" and the other is "VLC". Doing a search on Google will easily put you in contact with both of these neat programs. They both also preview downloads, for example if you are downloading a movie, you can see what movie it is before you waste a bunch of time downloading a misnamed file. Hope this helps :)

download BSPlayer from here:http://www.bsplayer.org/
open up the player right click and find the player options/preferences.......under "asscociated extentions" check all the video formats and it should play more or less all formats.

good luck;)
