click here And download the codec pack from the codec download page DUH!!!!!
This will run all mpegs and divx avi's,Including Xvid.Also comes with a player included which is as good as any other.

mark500's reply is probably better as it will support more formats, but for WMP 9, try the Windows Update site (top of the start menu)
