    Following installations of a few video converting programs, my good old WMP
    11 started to give the above strange error messages to all AVI files.
    Since I couldn't fix it, i uninstalled all the new programs and restored WMP
    11 into WMP 10 but still, the same is happening - can't open AVI files; the
    error message now is: "The source filter for this file could not be loaded."
    and if i go to "more information" i get:"Error ID = 0x80040241, Condition ID
    = 0x00000000" and if i go further to Microsoft support i get:"You've
    encountered error message 80040241 while using Windows Media Player.
    Additional information is not currently available for this error. "
    Pls help!!!
