I just installed the newest K-Lite codec pack and my Windows Media Player (NOT Classic) is messed up. It crashes every time I try to open a video file and Internet Explorer crashes whenever there is a video file embedded that tries to open with Windows Media Player (for instance, ESPN Motion and the trailer for Batman Begins). If I open the video files with another program (MPC, Quicktime, etc...) they work ok, but it is frustrating to have IE crash whenever a video would normally be displayed. I tried uninstalling, re-installing, re-booting, and nothing helps. I currently have the codec pack installed and am using XP Home.
Please help, I am at your mercy!!
