None of my media players will work. When I double click a song/video file, Windows Media Player/Media Player Classic will show, but nothing will play. It eventually just stops responding and freezes, along with my computer. I also tried opening Media Player Classic/Windows Media Player and tried to open the file from within them, but they still freeze up.
I even tried to run dxdiag, but that froze as well. DxDiag said it had a problen with DirectSound and DirectMusic.....whatever that means?!?! I unistalled and reinstalled the players, along with all the codec and divx stuff I had before..and again...nothing.
I think the problem might have happened when I tried to install a Logitech Webcam...which didn't finish sucessfully because of some missing file/couldn't be found. But, before I found out about the media players freezin problem...I had MusicMatch JukeBox and double clicked a song, and it played fine..no freezin at all....but i already had the other two players and decided to unistall it...then when I went to play files in the other two players...Freeze City.
I have Windows 98 SE with 160.0MB Ram.
