Try adjusting display properties in control panel - display. Or you monitor?

Yeh that will be it. Meant to be viewed like that!

You could change your monitor so that it shows only the picture - just while you watch movies lol.

yeah but its a non threatening crash. Only crashes and does nothing else. I will say its buggy but its good. And the crashes are quick so its not that bothersome.

Try again,this one doesn't crash and installs the necessary codecs.
And we all know how important codecs are.right gang ?

Of course your video card comes with a dvd player,doesn't it.
Windows Media Player sucks.
Why are so many hung up on useing it ?
Mr BG must love all the info he's gathering from your PC.
JUst an educated guess and my opinion,
