What happens is video/audio files that are embedded in web pages (and often, files that I try to stream/download) cause my browser (Firefox) to freeze. If they are streaming, then the player itself freezes. Attempted fixes:
Uninstall/Reinstall Windows Media Player (via the add/remove programs list)
Uninstall/Reinstall IE6 and Firefox
Download updates for WMP/browsers
Running norton, spybot, ewido
And all of those came up empty. I am at a loss as to what to do next. Any suggestions would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Thanks!
