can anyone plz tell me how to get the windows media player codecs?

i am trying to watch an AVI file, but it says that it has an error downloading codec...

the file's audio will then play fine, but no picture.

is there something i need to do, or can i view it with another player?

thx for any advise...

The password is pretty secure or there would be no point in having it, suggest your friend phones Packard Bell.

and reinstall windows xp you will not need a password to do it.
