    windows media player

    I have downloaded a couple of movies which plays in windows media player for
    vista home premium perfectly, except for when you try and move the scroll bar
    to move the film forward or back to different scenes it goes back the
    beginning of the film everytime. If you try and press the fastforward key
    next to play or rewind it just skips bacwards and forwards to the next movie
    saved in the folder. If anyone could help me resolve this i would be
    extremely grateful. thanks in advance

    That should indicate that the files have invalid or corrupt indexes. You
    would probably want to get non-corrupted versions of those files.

    The Windows Media File Editor from the Windows Media Encoder package can
    usually index non-corrupt files.

    If it's actually corrupt, you'd want to look for ASF/WMV repair tools. I
    don't typically keep track of those, sorry.
