I have been streaming 'legal' tv catchup here in Finland perfectly well using Internet Explorer, up until 6 days ago. I foolishly followed a Gizmodo article on how to keep your computer healthy (it involved CCleaner) and then I started getting error message and WMP seemed to have vanished from my machine (although it was still there). Even System Restore failed to work in Safe Mode. However, I restored my registry using the backup I saved previously, which restored the function of System Restore and Windows Media Player was acting like normal...Except for online streaming.
I often get Error code c00d1197. I follow the support offered by Microsoft and then the code will change to C00D10B5 or C00D11B1. They all seem similar. I have also followed the support offered in these forums, but still no luck. I would appreciate any help with this. I can't believe we are in 2010 and something as simple as trying to view online TV is so damn complicated.
Hope someone can help,
