    I have a problem with some windows media video files freezing when i play them. The video will keep going but the image will be frozen. i've downloaded and tried a couple programs, but it doesnt seem to work. Any ideas?

    Are you by chance using a nVidia GFX card and running the 77.72 drivers?
    Besides the gamma problem, I've read about a few other issues with those drivers.

    you know, i highly doubt it. Im not too familiar with the hardware in my comptuer, as it is a hp pavillion notebook. I'm pretty sure its not a driver or hardware problem, because i loaded all my video files on an external hard drive, did a system restore, updated the media player, and put a certain video back on my computer, tried to load it, and it kept freezing. I was wondering if in the transfer, i might have corrupted a certain part of the video? I just wanna watch my ferraris! :)
