Ask for genuine microsoft software
Apparantly it is what it says it is. What you have is probably not a legal copy of windows. I had a friend of mine have that same error and it was that he had taken it to a computer repair company and they reinstalled windows with a pirated copy.

WMM wont open my mpeg file
There are plenty of FREE open source media players that you can use. I recommend VLC player. It will play everything, unless the file is corrupted.

My email was changed from sbcglobal.net to att.net
When a person is using the ISP (Internet Service Provider) for the e-mail, and that provider is changed, the e-mail goes with the provider. One cannot have a sbc e-mail account without sbc being the carrier.
One could contact sbc to find out if they could forward those unread messages to the ATT e-mail account.
Hot mail from Microsoft or G mail from google are supported by the Internet Browser, so those accounts will transfer from any different ISP.

M360s audio drivers
XP is not maintained by Microsoft any longer so the drivers would be unavailable from them. M360, i don't know what that is? but if it is a device, you can go to the mfg web site and may access the drivers there and download them to pc.
