Ive done a lot of searching but havent been able to find a solution...

My laptop suddenly will not play video's or music. I use both nero and wmp to play music and videos. When opening a video file in WMP now i get the error "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file. For additional assistance, click Web Help.

With nero i get "error reading file".

When playing music in iTunes it will load the song but not play it.


Im really stumped. Any solution is greatly appreciated.

I did have Aim and I did update it about a month ago, and thats approx the time that problems started to occur.

I uninstalled Aim a few weeks ago though.

That fixed everything except for the "server execution failure" but i can live without that since the wireless still works fine.

Really appreciate your help. Was driving me nuts.
