Why won't it run?

    My daughter sent me a video newsclip from her local station. When attempting to view it, it said it could only run on Windows Media (which I already run) and IE 5 or 6. I had removed IE when switching to Firefox and so I went to MajorGeek to download. Even after the download, the clip still won't play. What to do?

    Here is the IE download

    Whiles good to use Firefox,you shouldn't unistall IE.

    I use Winamp or Media Player Classic to play most files.

    With those requirements,it sounds like she sent you an internet link not a video file.

    Winamp

    When you get IE back up and running, run Windows Update.

    Do not uninstall IE, block it with a firewall and only allow it when running update.
