    Whenever I go to play an AVI or any video in MediaPlayer in full screen mode, the screen goes full-screen for afew seconds but then switch's back to a normal windowed view. I cant get full-screen no matter what!

    When I 1st used media player it worked, and I have not changed anything Im aware of.

    I have enabled full screen in advanced settings, but its not working, why could this be and does anyone know of a solution/fix. :confused:

    Cheers

    If it hasn't been doing it long have you tried system restore?

    I hate when that happens, I remember hearing about this before though. Not sure exactly how to fix it though. Have you done a search here? Or maybe there is an update on Windows Update? It's worth a try anyway.

    Stuy,

    How did you wipe out your restore points, not that this is the subject. I want to get rid of mine and have looked all over for a place to do it, and find nothing.

    Thanks,

    Danchev,

    Disk Cleanup from System Tools, click on the tab at top and tick delete restore points. et voila! :D ;)

    Worth doing, it will delete all restore points except the very latest one. I free'd 6Gb!! by deleting them! :D
