R61i and Windows Movie Maker conflict

2008-01-30, 16:08 PM
I had purchased 2 R61i laptops for family use - running XP Pro. Upon doing all of the Windows and Lenovo updates, I find that Windows Movie Maker encounters a problem and needs to close the app (error message on both laptops). A Lenovo service rep says that I need to do a complete system reinstall. They just sent me disks yesterday. When I Googled for the error, I see references to conflicts with WinDVD and also IE. Any thoughts or suggestions before I start the reinstall?

Uninstall WinDVD and try the free VLC Media Player
See if the problem persists (most likely not).

By trail an error, found that the Win DVD Creator was causing the conflict with Windows Movie Maker. Removed that program and no further problems.
