starz PLAY "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing this file" error!?!

My laptop running Windows 7 is having the error, " Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file." when trying to play downloaded movies whereas the "live Starz TV" works fine. My netbook is working properly though, anyone seen this before?

-  if you're still having the issue, make sure you are running all the latest video/audio codec's for windows media player and win 7   and also take a moment to check this article from microsoft.
