I can't play any AVI files in Windows Media Player. I only get the sound and then it shows the usual graphics (like a screen saver). I looked it up here on GTG and tried half a dozen different media players (Classic, Hyplay and quite a few others. Same results (although the symptoms vary from just being stuck after the first image, to messages that it can't be played).
Sometimes I see that my McAfee icon 'lights up', and there is then a text in the McAfee Access Protection Log, saying:
Would be blocked by Access Protection rule (rule is currently not enforced) LAPTOPBH\bh C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE C:\Documents and Settings\JP\Local Settings\Temp\Rar$EX00.437\mplayerc.exe Common Standard Protection:Prevent common programs from running files from the Temp folder Action blocked : Execute
This one is mentioning that I used Media Player Classic (one of the few I tried), but the result is the same with Windows Media Player.
However, it does not happen always that I get a message in McAfee. But I nevertheless can't play the files anymore.
I have the feeling McAfee is blocking some codecs, but I am not sure, because I used to be able to play AVI files, and I did not change anything in the settings.
Thanks for your help, regards,
