As the title states I am having an issue with my video players.  The problem isn't really tied to a single program but the player that I use the most is Windows Media Player.  When ever I open a video file (AVI), WMP will open up and attempt to load the video and then it will pop-up that informs me that "Windows Media Player has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience."  When I click Don't Send it closes the box and also closes WMP.  I have tried removing WMP and reloading it and also updated my version of K-lite codec pack (full version).

I have tried opening other AVIs and they all do the same thing.  I open have successfully opened all of them on my other computer so I know that the file is fine.  I have tried WMVs in windows media player as well and that will open but when it plays it has a big green box over the video and so it still doesn't play correcltly.

If any one has any suggestions I would really appreciate it because I am at my wits end with this and I really want my media player back so that I can watch videos on my laptop.  Also, if it makes any difference I am running Windows XP with SP3.

Thanks in advance for all help. PC Smash
