PC freezes when I try to play movie clips

  1. Every time I try to play a .wmw or .wav file - usually from an email attachment my PC just freezes and I have to restart

    It is fine playing clips from EZines or You Tube etc

    I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 graphics card

    I have tried updating/rolling back the driver etc but with no change to the problem

    Any help appreciated please

    Have you tried re-installing or upgrading your media player?

    Because I do not have the original XP disk I with the serial number on it I cannot upgrade from Windows Media Player 10 to 11. I have tried playing the clips with Real Player and VLC but it gives the same outcome. A frozen PC
