m3u amazon.com

I can no longer play sample m3u audio tracks from Amazon.com, although all is OK with other streaming audio mp3 and m3u. I'm using Windows Media Player 11 and it is the default player for m3u files.  Recently I installed and then uninstalled Apple itunes and quicktime, but I can't be sure if the timing was concurrent with the problem.
I also attempted to run regsvr32.exe wmp.dll from the command prompt as suggested in an EE post, but got error message 0x8002801c. Later I came across a warning that running this could mess up other things.

hmm yes I know this site its very good for playing sample files, what do you choose to play, their default player?
They usually offer you a choice of which player
does that work?
You could also try a system restore.
however please note,
Quicktime is a required component with your windows, as this is Vista includes Itunes.
Please re-install quicktime
If you want quicktime without Itunes
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/
To have video playback from web pages these are the standard  required programs.
QT
Real player
Java
Flash player
WMP

0x8002801c.
This error means that regsvr32 was not able to access and/or update the registry. Check the permissions on the part of the registry where access is denied. You can run regmon to manually fix the registry.

By a process of elimination, I determine the problem to be related to a setting on my antivirus. It now is OK.

Problem was solved by changing the real time monitoring setting within Bit Defender antivirus. After inactivating the real time monitoring option I was able to play audio sample files. The interesting thing was that I could then activate real time monitoring and it would continue to perform properly.
