Mpegs, Quicktime movies and Real Player files crash their respective players.
When I first got my computer there was no such problem so when this started to happen I reformatted my hard drive and installed Media Player - but it still would not respond while attempting to open mpegs.
Weird: Later I installed Real Player then Quicktime consecutively and attempted to play a Real Audio file without restarting and it worked. Then I tried to play an Mpeg and it played fine as well. Quicktime Player, however, would lock up when launched.
I restarted my computer and now nothing is playing again.
