Whenever I go to a site such as http://www.big-boys..../badredcar.html, windows media won't stream the video. It also locks up my browser (I've tried firefox, IE, and Netscape with same results), so I have to close it through the task manager. It has been doing this for a while, so I don't know when it started. If there is an option to save the file, I can save it. However, if the save option is on the same screen as the stream, I have to shut down the browser through the task manager again. Any suggestions? I have tried to reinstall WMP, but I have never tried to do it with removing WMP first.

Click start then control panel add / remove tick show updates then click remove media player, it should offer to roll back to the former version.
