    Can't use WMV files
    When I bought my computer, it came installed with Windows XP and all other programs. I tried getting service pack 2 and was unable to install it as the XP was not the original.
    Ever since the computer has been displaying XP not genuine and has basically made all the WMV files and video capture in WMV formats unusable and unreadable by all media players in the computer.

    Any advice, help folks?
