Hmm, re-install Windows Media Player, or try updating your internet version

I hope this helps

I'm not saying this will work, but you have not updated to service pack 2. This might fix any glitches that you may have on your system.

Win XP SP2 Download Link...

Before installing SP2, go here and read these to things to do before hand... http://www.scotsnewsletter.com/best_of/xpsp2links.htm
