HELP,my windows media player keeps shutting down {vista] when i try to play a downloaded movie or clip.
comes up witrh DEP error COM surrogate
Also says it it is caused by FFDSHOW.codec
have tried the solutions vista help gives none have worked. Wont even let me copy to a flash drive or burn onto dvd.
I think it might have been caused after i uploaded [although not a downloaded one] a vidoe clip to my psp.

Thanx. It has solved problem. I did go to some early threads while waiting for a response and they had the same thing. Looked liked it was caused by downloading the trial version of CuCusoft though for my psp.I had unistalled this but when upgrading the codec it i had to delete some sort of link attached to it. Cheers
