HI

Up until about a week ago I had no problem playing files with the WMA and
WMV extentions. But now NO player including Windows media player will play
these items.(Real.., Irfan, or InterVideo) Some are file I paid for and no
I feel I lost money because these items can not be used.

Any suggestions of what I could do??

I am running Windows XP and the most recent upgrade to WMP.
