Windows 7: IE9 stops working when trying to view page with WMP/midi embedded

IE9 stops working when trying to view page with WMP/midi embedded

I created some Christmas cards with music thru embedded midi files and could view and hear everything until today. Now when I try to viiew one of them, or go to any site that uses WMP for midis, I get an error message that IE has stopped working and will notify me of a solution. If I remove the midi file from the page, then the page functions properly. I went to my "Manage Add-Ons" and WMP is enabled. What else can I do?

Here's one of my cards:

Also, here's a page on my website that has WMP with a mid file that no longer works for me:

"USS Euryale Passings of Crew"

Any help at all is appreciated!

Desk Top with Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit and Lap Top with Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit

IE 9 gives me the same problem anytime it makes up its mind to. It does so on both of my computers. I sill am a fan of IE 8.

I think I solved this. I disabled my Norton toolbar browser add-on and everything behaves normally. I'm off to look into reconfiguring it to allow for this.

how to view single page
Hi all, I'm running Microsoft Office XP on win7 64bit and can't seem to find a way to view only one page in a Word document. If I download or write more than one page they come up in two page side by side format on the screen. Is there a way to set one page at a time viewing as default?
