DRM & Key Exchange problems

Hi Guys

Am getting to the end of my tether on this one ! Have a decent system with 512 Ram and never had problems with playing dvd in windows media 10.

I run windows XP with SP2 and recently installed an Iomega DVD Burner. With this software installed it even recognised one of my existing Hitachi DVD drives enabling me to write on that too.

All worked great for 3 weeks. I use a programme called PQDVD for crunching down DVD's on SD cards for my Ipaq.

Suddenly with no apparent reason, whenever I try to watch a DVD in WMP10 it fails as says a problem occurred with DRM and must close. When I try and play a shop brought dvd in PQDVD it says that key exchange has failed... try various solutions, none of which work.

I tried updated codecs and used MS Codec check utility, i'd like a solution without the need for a complete XP reinstall as of course WMP10 is an integral part of the operating system

Any idea how to sort out drm problem ?
