I have downloaded several AVI files, and some of the time the open corectly with windows media player, which is the default for them on my computer, but about half the time i can only get the sound, even though in propertys I can find the framerate listed. Does anyone know of another program I should use?

Sounds like you need to get the codecs to get them to run you can get them here http://www.divx.com/

Some .avi files have been compressed with "codecs". The most redular codec is DivX (download from www.divx.com (http://www.divx.com)).

Another one could be Xvid, www.xvid.org (http://www.xvid.org)

Good luck!
