Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file.

I just downloaded a digital copy of The Avengers and when I try to play it, I get the message "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file" in a pop up. When I click Web Help it directs me to check my audio which I did and is all fine. Another post in this forum suggested I turn off and then on WMP. That didn't work either.

 

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on an HP Pavilion g4 Notebook. Product number: LW344UA#ABA.

 

Is there a fix for this?

Does any other movie or video play through WMP ? 

 

Or is it just  The Avengers ?

I would suggest following this document http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itpromedia/thread/49c72a51-6e66-4b5d-ab40-5ce7220...

 

Go down to "Dale Qiao's" answer and try that. Should be the second post. 

 

Let me know the outcome.
