I can open both of the programs, but when I try to open any media file, my computer restarts. . .
When it starts back up, it says that "Windows has recovered from a serious error" (I seem to get these a lot on all of my winxp PC's both PRO and HOME. . .)

Then it sends me to this ever so helpful page >:-P

I can use other third party media players.
But I miss WMP11's user interface.
and I just sorted out all of my songs. . .:-(

Has this been happening to anyone else?

Oh yea, and the problem started when I tried to play a FRAPS video without converting it to a smaller size. . .
http://www.fraps.com/(for anyone who is wondering)

(ADMIN can kill link if it is advertising, it took me a second to think if thats pushing it too far on advertising.)

so, please help!!!
Will respond within 24 hours
(would be quicker but school is killing my schedule)



Oh and by the way, I started reading that Microsoft Help link thing, and just to let you guys know, the only "new" hardware that I've installed is a microsoft fingerprint reader.
That was about 20days ago.
But like I said, the problem started when I tried to play a FRAPS video. . .

So once again,

when you try and use wmp11, do you get a "blue screen" error? If so, then it should have a stop code error. Something like stop: 0x00000050 as an example.

Solved the problem, I needed to disable hardware acceleration on my sound card.
Works perfectly now!
But it flash a BlueScreenOfDeath before it restarted.
No idea what it said, but I recognized the evil blue! :-P
Thanks for the response!
