WMP files. Black screen on right click

  Tazfan 13:13 26 Jan 2006



A few days ago, I noticed that when I right click a Windows Media Player Icon, whether it be in thumbnail, Icon, Details, Icon view, the screen goes completely black for approx 1.5 seconds. When the display comes back, the right click menu is there as it should be. I have only just decided it annoys me, and I would like it fixed. Its only WMP files that it occurs with. Real Player (Alt version!), Quick Time, Music and any other icon open normally with right click. My Graphics driver is the latest, I have reinstalled WMP. No new hardware or software was installed that could have caused this anomaly.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, and as always, many thanks in advance for your time and trouble.

Hi Neil,is it not perhaps due to the WMF exploit patch?

As far as I am aware mate, Im patched and clean as far as WMF is concerned.

I understand that,but is the WMP behaviour not as a result of the MS patch for WMFexploit.I could easily be barking up not only the wrong tree but in completely the wrong forest.
