    I got the same problem of play back when I run Movie Maker and open a
    previously saved project. The trick I used to make it work is

    1) go to the last clip on the timeline, cut it.
    2) position the marker just after the new last clip, past the clip which has
    been cut.

    Everything is back to normal. But it's a trick, not a clean solution. I hope
    that Microsoft will solve the problem.

    It is possible that your source files are of a type that do not work well
    with Movie Maker and you may need to convert them to a type that works in
    WMM. Have a look at this web site for better help:
