WMP 10 'green triangle' video error
I've been getting a strange error in wmp 10. Sometimes when I watch a video using it, the display has a coloured transparent triangle covering half of the screen, from the top left corner. I can't find a way to fix it without just restarting my computer - restarting wmp doesn't help. Normally the triangle is green. This hasn't happened in winamp.
It's quite a rare occurence but it's slightly worrying, especially as I can find no information about it using google.
Anyone got any ideas why this happens? Is it a virus or driver problem?

I would guess driver. I had been experiencing a similar problem with WMP 9, except it only occurred when I opened the colour settings while a video was playing. I changed the Catalyst driver I was using (sorry, I can't remember what version I had) and the problem went away.
Try the latest version if you haven't got it already:
i'm fairly sure i've got the latest driver - at least, the latest one from windows update.
btw, I couldn't get that link to work.
Don't use the video drivers you get through Windows Update. Sorry about the link, just go to ATI's site and select Drivers & Software and go from there:
You have to use your noodle when navigating web sites these days.
Start with "Drivers and Software" on the left.
