What Player are you running? MS Media Player 5.2 and above actually go out to the net and grab the decompressors for you.
Try this site also. They have a lot of good players.

Thank you so much for your help.  I'm new at this here......#3 says increase points to 100.....now if I do that I won't have any points left....correct?    Ah well, it was worth it.  LOL

And to esr0k:  Thank you also.  I'm usually pretty savy when it comes to computers but I guess I just wasn't looking in the right places.  I installed NetToob and I think it got rid of some things I needed OR I'm just tired tonight.  Sounds good to me!!!!  BTW   I like your smiley face...haven't seen one like that before!   Sue
