DRM Issue

Hi,
I am having a problem with DRM on Vista. When I try and play any DRM
protected content Windows Media Player just says Windows Media Player
encountered a problem while playing the file. For additional assistance,
Click web help. I have clicked web help and that didn't help at all. I have
done system restores back to when I know it was working and that doesn't
work. I have located the DRM folder and there wasn't anything in the folder
apart from a hidden folder called server. Apart for re-installing the OS I am
not sure what to do.

Any Ideas?

Just curoius...quite a few DRM schemes are not IE7 or Vista ready could the
be the problem? Check with the content provider.
