If the mouse moves, the system hasn't crashed - if you wait it will most
likely respond.  Running top in a terminal window could be instructive.

I'm assuming you checked dmesg and /var/log for relevant info....

Try launching Totem from the terminal, and posting any messages
generated when Totem tries to play the downloaded wmv.

Do you have any other video players installed? VLC? Kaffeine? Dragon?
Mplayer etc?

Also - please post the contents of your sources.list
