How is this corrected?

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 3.093 GHz / 1023 MB
Windows Media Player cannot connect to the server. The server name might not be correct, the server might not be available, or your proxy settings might not be correct.

This is the message I get when I try to download a movie. Any suggestions for an old man?

Thanks,
Jim

I never have downloaded a movie. So not sure if you have to save the download to your harddrive before watching the movie.

Try this --
Right click the last link you click to download,
then click the item on the menu that pops up that would save the file to your harddrive.
It may say something like "Save Target Link as..."

It may be that the movie you're trying to watch can only be streamed, rather than downloaded, so try this for a start - open Windows Media Player, click on the 'Tools' menu, select 'options' and put a tick in the 'connect to the internet' box. Does the movie play?
