Presumably you're on Win98 as MP9 is not compatable with 98, will only work with 98se upwards.

If you just have 98 I sugest you uninstall MP9 and go for Real One player which is also free but works. It is also used by major Co.s like the BBC so is more likely to work with all web sites etc.

click here for Real's site info and download.
