Illegal Operation

  Highland Park 17:07 24 Sep 2004

I recently upgraded my Win. Media to 9 Series, and since then when I use my Soft DVD program to view DVD`s on the computer I get the message
"This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" and I have to click the close buton and shut the program down.
Can anyone help ?.

Can you reinstall the DVD player software?

get rid of Win Media 9 as it could be corrupting the system...and see if you can version 10 otherwise go back to the old version...

best thing really to do would be to try and reinstall the DVD software but if that dont do it....then get rid of Win Media 9...

To Dio/Sic & Noelg 23
Got rid of Win. Media 9 Series, unfortunately it didn`t help and I didn`t get any software with my NEC ND 1300A, bought it as a single unit as I did with the NEC ND 3500A that I have in my XP Pro tower. Anyone else got any suggestions ?.

click here for a free DVD player that might serve as an alternative.

Or MaximusDVD if you can track it down - it seems to have disappeared.
