Cannot open WMP from IE 6

I am running Win XP, SP2 with Windows Media Player 10 and IE 6.0. I have recently discovered that I cannot open WMP through IE. Clicking on a MPEG or WMV link used to go directly to WMP but now I have to download and go to WMP directly. The same thing occurs with Microsoft Outlook links in an email. When I click on a link, nothing happens except IE gives an error saying server not found and file cannot be opened! I have installed all of the current updates, have no spyware or viruses that I can find, all file associations are set correctly, and everything else works just fine. As a matter of fact, I can open WMP directly from Mozilla Firefox and from Opera.

I am attaching a HijackThis log file to see if there is anything in it that could indicate what the problem is.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
