Need Help - IE and COM Surrogate

for the last couple of weeks many times when I use the media player I get this COM surrogate error when it closes
Now tonight while at site I started getting this other debug error and it shut down the page
I tried doing a system restore to the end of last month but it didn't help
Am using XP Pro and IE6

That particular error is usually down to a faulty codec.

It might just be best to reinstall Windows Media Player, coz that'll replace the codecs, too.

Even better, remove Windows Media Player and use Irfanview! :D

Have a look here: Comm Surrogate this seems to be a common problem.
In this case it refers to Vista, but I think you'll find that XP has similar issues.
