Windows Media Player server error?

  1. First off thank you for reading this instead of skimming by, any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Well, here's the problem. I cannot access video files on my computer (running on windows 7 64-bit). NO AVI files seem to work, I've tested them all. Yup, every single one. Here's how it goes:

    Click an .avi file
    Loads for about 5-20 seconds
    Error message "Server Execution failure"

    Now I've tried restarting Windows Live Media Player, but it hasn't done a thing.

    As said before, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you~

    This sounds like a problem with your Internet connection and not with Windows

    Unfortunately not. After searching around, a few other people online have the same problem.
