Windows Media Player

my windows meadia player wont load a video file or any movie files at all it just goes mega slow but the media player does show and is viewable but the movies are not and when i close the media player its still there in the back ground, i have to go to task manager and delete EXPLORER.EXE but as some of you would know if i do that then i will be lefted with a blank screen and nothing to click on so i have to press run the EXPLORER.EXE again.

basically i cant load up video files it would slow my PC down to the MAX and is unbearable to play use even the mouse curser slow down so much it takes ages for the movement to be visable on the screen.

any suggestions?

Have you checked the nVidia website to see what the latest driver version is and also for possible solution(s) to your problem?
