I have this weird behavior in Windows Media Player 11.
When I play videos (AVI file, for example), the movie plays great.
However, the cursor of the Seek Bar is missing. Only by moving the mouse over the Seek Bar, the cursor is displayed, but it is, well, kind of fastened to the most left side of the bar (even though the movie is, say, in the middle).
When trying to use the Seek Bar to get to a certain point in the movie, i.e., "scroll" it, the movie gets back to the beginning, and plays from the very first second.
This problem just suddenly happened. I could play the same video, and "scroll" it to wherever I please, but then suddenly, this phenomena I just described started. Moreover, This happens on my laptop, but on my desktop it does not (for the very same file).
I didn't do anything that I can say that from that point on the problem started (well, didn't do anything knowingly, for the least).
What have I tried?
I tried downloading Windows Media Player from Microsoft site, and re-install it. It did not fix the problem. I tried downloading DivX codec (from DivX site) and re-installing it, but it did not solve the problem either.
(I didn't uninstall Media Player nor DivX prior to running the installer, but it is likely not the issue, right?...)
I would assume something in the registry went wrong, but I really do not know where to start from...
So, anyone of you professionals have any idea? I would appreciate any help.
