Media player freezes

  TN 19:01 28 Oct 2008

I have a fault which has arisen in the last 10 days - If i click on any video or music and the programme I am in launches MS Media Player, my computer freezes and has to be switched off and re-started: However if I have already started to run Media Player before I select anything to play, there is no problem. I am running XP Home with 2GB RAM and about 120 GB free space on my disk. I run a virus check daily and have had my registry checked and also ran System File Check and all is well according to all of these. The same thing (freezing) also occurs if I put a CD in the player and it auto-runs. Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Many thanks chub_tor - I downloaded the K-Lite Codec Pack 4 and installed it and whatever it has done, all is working 100% - again thanks.
