I have a amd athlon 2100+ with 256 mb ddr (should be getting some more)running windows 2003 server.

MY PROBLEM
When I try opening any online video, (online clip, or streaming media) I get this message "windows media player cannot play this file. Connect to the internet or insert the removable media on which the file is located, and then try to play the file again. BUT I'm online and can do I think everything online. I disbaled windows firewall and don't have any currently installed. I've tried going to options and enable everything and configure everything to automatic, BUT that wouldn't help either. I don't know if this might help, But I do keep on getting occasionally the "view offline" or "try again" window. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated ! THANKS FOR YOU TIME!

Open Windows Media Player.
On the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Network tab, make sure that the appropriate check boxes are selected (Multicast, TCP, and HTTP).

If that doesn't work try this:

Go here and download The Windows Installer CleanUp Utility :
http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...kb;en-us;290301
See if WMP is listed in the utility (it may not be,but worth a shot) if it is listed remove it.
Then re-install Wmp

Dear rude! Sorry for not responding sooner.
I tried that link you gave me, But It doesn't have any wmp or windows media player. I tried that other thing in options, everything is checked. Now I notice it says connecting and buffering, But the the indicator doesn't show any action. Then I get this "done".
