Windows Media Player 11 shuts my computer down

\015 Anytime Windows Media Player starts to display a video of any type, the screen will blink black 2 or 3 times and then the screen goes completely black and I have to hold in the power button to restart the computer. I have now idsabled it for all extension types. I need another media player that will be stable in my computer or else I need one of your Techs to fix this computer. I have updated to v-11. I have 2 other computers and there is no problem there. the system is xp pro with sp 3.\015

Answers :

WAIT! Before you uninstall your media player, try the K-Lite codec pack, found here: http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm

\015\012The world of AV files is rapidly expanding, and the K-Lite pack can handle most any extension out there! I have run it on XP with sp3 for a long, long time without any trouble! If you do have to uninstall/reinstall your media player, install K-Lite AFTER, as to get the best codecs!

If the windows media worked before the updates you are able to revert in the moment in time when it was opperating correct. If there was a check point created, that is the best thing about XP. You can go there by clicking on 'start' -> 'accessories' -> 'system tools' -> 'system restore' then select 'restore my computer to an earlier time' -> 'next' you will come to a calender, click a bold date, this will be a date before the updates that was created. Select that date then press 'next' note: before you select next you will see details on that date on the screen next to the calendar with what was changed at that time. Select next then read the prompts, the computer will do its thing and shut down, and come back up. This will take some time, and will not erase any data.
Best of luck!
