    Hi, maybe you can help me.
    My problem: The videos on my computer seem to have a long delay before they
    start in Windows Media Player (about 1 minute delay). Even if I just click
    on a video (wmv, asf, avi) to see the little preview picture in the details
    column of my folder window, it takes about 1 minute for the preview picture
    to show up. Audio formats (wma, mp3) work fine and start right away.

    I didn't have this problem until I installed new software a few weeks ago.
    The software I installed was: 'Windows Live One Care', 'Office Home And
    Student 2007', 'Microsoft Plus - Superpack for Windows' and
    'Nero-StartSmart'. Also windows automatic update updated my Windows Media
    Player from version 10 to 11.

    My PC runs on Windows XP service pack 2 and is equipped with 750 MB of Ram.

    Maybe you can help me to solve this problem.

    Thank you
