Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Any AVI no matter what program I go through gives me the message "COM surrogate has stopped working" or I get "Windows Media Player has failed to work". I have Windows VISTA. Can anyone help me?
Thank you and Happy New Year.
There are a number of possible solutions to this problem, and the right solution depends greatly on what software is actually causing the problem. Some of the most well-known problem causing softwares are DivX and Nero, but there are others that cause the problem as well.
This will break Nero Showtime, however. (thanks to dugi in the comments for this one)
Click on Advanced System Settings, and then under Advanced, click Settings
Select the "Data Execution Protection" tab, and then click â€œTurn on DEP for all programs and services except those I selectâ€?
Click on the Add button, and then browse to C:\Windows\System32\dllhost.exeCan't playback Flip videos - clip_image00231.jpgmg src="http://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/clip_image00231.jpg" alt="clip_image00231.jpg" class="h_mi" /> Click Open, and then OK.

Delete the AVI software from your system and reload it again form the software cd you have it with you. it will start working properly.
