WMP 9.0 cannot play the file - protocol is not supported

Acutual Message:
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the
specified protocol is not supported.In the Open URL
dialog, try opening the file using a different transport
protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:").

I receive this message on any website even Microsofts
Media center. This happens when I go to Tower Records,
Amazon or Buy.com to listen to music samples. Again, it
happens when I go to MSN or Windowsmedia.com to listen to
music samples. I have attempted to unistall and
reinstall, but no such luck. I am using Windows 2000.
One other note, I have WMP 9.0 installed on another
machine and it works fine!!!

I really appreciate anyones help with this!
