Windows 7: Windows Media Player Error

Windows Media Player Error

Hi Guys
I'm getting slightly pissed at Windows Media Player atm
It keeps giving me this error, if i try to play one of my protected WMA files (downloaded from tdc play)
I can play these files up to 40 or 50 times, and then i get the error message "you must restart the machine to continue content processing". The files works again and plays 40-50 times, and then get the same message again

This is really irritating and i really don't want to restart my pc every 3 hours because of this!

Anyone out there who has a solution? I have looked on the net, but have found nothing useful information

Hi Sergio,

This problem doesnt seem to have a neat solution. There is a google groups page in which a large no. of possible fixes have been put forward, its slightly old but may work for you.

R&R installer? - microsoft.public.windowsmedia.drm | Google Groups

Good luck!

Well after trying almost anything i could, i have decided to go back to using Zune Player instead.

EDIT: Damn it! They don't work there now! :S
