I received a security flag from Secunia indicating that WMP9 was unsafe. The fix was to download and install WMP11, which I did.

After XP validation and installation of WMP11, I attempted to try it out. A message came up that WMP11 wished to access the internet. I allowed it to connect and it immediately shut down my computer and rebooted. After attempting this 3 times I gave up and uninstalled the program.

I am now back to running WMP9 but I am at the point that I am looking for an alternative media player without all of the problems associated with Windows.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you

Download free VLC Player and see if that works for you.
