    ..In fact I have trouble a lot lately with any Windows Media Player video application if it is included in the browsers window, now if it activates the stand alone player (streams the data directly to the stand alone WMP application) it works fine but here lately I can't get any video from TechTv or any site that uses an "in browser" WMP window to work, it simply freezes. Is there a setting I don't have switched on in my browser options? I think I have everything set up properly...in fact I also get a lot of "little red X's in boxes" on certain sites when I should be receiving a picture. Anyone else have this problem and know what I can do to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Nobody has ever had this problem?
    I use Spybot & AdAware quite a lot, could this have delated something necessary for this aplication?

    What usually works is holding down the Ctrl key when clicking on the link.

    No one has had this problem?
    Neil J's suggestion didn't work & I can't find anything in my settings that might be preventing TechTv's media player/application from playing, anything similar to this problem ever pop up at other sites?
