I posted this problem before on this Forum and got some interesting responses. However, I have tried them all and none, unfortunately, work.
As I explained earlier, I had a functioning VLC media player on my computer. However, a few days ago, I was asked if I wanted to update it. I clicked yes. Unfortunately, the download failed and the program stopped functioning. I deleted the copy I had and downloaded another VLC setup file. Unfortunately, it will not open on my computer. This is very strange. I downloaded it earlier without incident but now I can’t do it again. Every time the setup file tries to download the .exe files to my computer, the download fails. Previously, I used Vipre ant-virus but now I use MS Security Essentials. I was wondering if this is the problem. If I turned this program off temporarily, could I then perhaps download VLC to my computer? BTW, my OS is Vista. Finally, does anyone know where I can download a complete copy of VLC media Player program? Any advice given is greatly appreciated.
