    I was wondering if anyone else is having problems with Windows media player. I cannot even open it without it giving me some error message. I tried to download it from windows site however it crashed my computer. Then I downloaded it from download.com and reinstalled it, and now it won't even open. What gives? Any ideas?

    Scott,

    What OS are you running? You may be trying to install the XP WMP instead of 7.1 and that might be your problem.
