  1. You could install/reinstall WMP11.

    I would recommend using VLC instead of WMP.

    Seems you're way behind on Windows Updates running IE6?, what SP are you running?

    I would suggest updating your computer to its securest level through Windows Update, to SP3, and available updates beyond SP3, IE8, MP11, and you'll have what you need to playback a DVD.
