    When I start my computer up and play movies.......it all goes fine until
    about 4-5 hours later.....if I go to play the same movie again.......I get
    the message in media player that its "attempting to download codec" and this
    error message flickers for about 2-3 minutes and pops up with an error
    message saying that it cannot find it.

    I have just installed WinAmp but I doubt this would have something to do
    with it......has anyone got any suggestions out there??

    What kind of movies are you having problems with? What's the file extension
    for afflicted files?

    (speaking for myself and doing this in my free time)
    See http://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info.
