MovieMaker will not load .MPG file

    When I try to import a .mpg file into moviemaker I get the following
    (complete) message:

    "C:\Documents and Settings\gwdavid\My Documents\My Videos\M2U00008.MPG could
    not be imported. An interface has too many methods to fire events from"

    I get the same message on another machine. Both machines are running
    moviemaker version 2.1.4026.0. Also, the file plays just fine in Media
    Player so I am assuming the file is not corrupted. Any suggestions?
