hey everyone
my computer recently had an error and i was forced to repair the system using the windows cd. Now after the repair was complete everything was back to normal and working fine but when i try to open DRM protected media files i get this message,

'Windows Media Player cannot play, synchronize, or burn a protected file because an error occurred while verifying the license.'

is there anything i can do to play these files is there any way to remove the DRM thats protecting the files so i can watch them again or are they lost for good? The files aren't that important but it would be nice if i could still use them. i am sure i am not the only person having this problem or a similar problem.
is there anyone out there with any help or advice?

Try this link but be warned THIS LINK CONTAINS A REGERISTRY FIX! If you are not comfortable running regedit dont as any errors may cause system failure!

Back up your registry with ERUNT first though.

Instead of navigating through the registry, you could copy and paste the following BOLD text into notepad and saved it as registry.reg

NOTE: Only for Windows XP!!



[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Media\WMSDK\General]

then double click that file you just saved.
