Turn on my comp today, and whenever i want to watch a vid on a fixed website or any windows media on the web i get an oldschool windows media player skin and nothing happens - go to errors to see what's up and get:

Error=80040241

Look this up and it is a service pack one error that i cannot even correct because my comp is fully up to date and always is with SPII. Any ideas besides deleting wmp and reinstalling?///// Also i was fidling with codecs the other day, not for me but trying to help someone fix theirs and went on some divx codecs sites which i already have running free in my system anyway - what the [bleep] is going on??

When i download a vid from limewire or anywhere else it fine, it only on sites like greek soccer where the media player is fixed. I can still open up media player and play all vids on it, it is only pages like this that will work for u and no longer me:

just get an oldcshool wmp skin and nothing except that error code...???
