    I have a new computer operating Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10.
    Whenever I click on a video file on the internet, I receive a window asking
    me if I want to save the file. It contains an error message that states:

    The file you are downloading cannot be opened by the default program. It is
    either corrupted or it has an incorrect file type. As a security precaution,
    it is recommended that you cancel the download.

    If I download the file, Windows Media Player opens and plays the file just
    fine. How do I get it to open the file without having to download first.
    Window Media Player is my default player for all file extensions that I am
    trying to download, this was verified in file types under my computer
    properties. Some please help me here, this is driving me crazy.
