I am running Windows XP and want to watch a DVD as I have done previously. I get the message: Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card.

I do not understand what to do. I have tried some links I found on the Internet but they appear to be subterfuges for loading new search engines or whatever.

Since finding your site I have run a scan, it says I have 103 ActiveX/OLE problems and 160 Empty Registry Keys I've no idea what this means!

You must have clicked on a link to download a registry cleaner. Most of these programs are scams so just uninstall the program.

In order to watch a DVD get VLC media player, it usually works much better than Windows Media Player.

Many thanks Stantley, I was relieved to find a free download that worked!

Many thanks Phantom010, I have read the info about registry vacs etc and now understand to ignore them!
