Problem is pretty weird - might be, that there is more than one actually.
One fine day my computer stopped playing burnt media files directly from DVD's - playback hangs up any application that is chosen - Media PLayer, vplayer, winamp - you name it... On the other hand - original software - like games - work just fine.
Also - I discovered I cannot burn DVD's with Nero nor with regular Windows XP burning option - again - nero crashes, windows explorer hangs up...
A hint? - because my firefox started slowing down and a while ago I had a virus problem (thanx to you resolved) and, because I had my anti-virus software down for a week or two - I manualy deleted a few files with suspicious names from the windows catalogue... ooops i did it again?!?!?!?!?
maybe I deleted a DVD driver or something???? Sorry for being such a dork...
