Windows Media Player v7.0 for Windows NT Install the player and then run one of the videos. The problem I am having is that the video either plays back in a small window which you cannot adjust the size of unless you go full screen (ALT+ENTER). Before we could play the video back at original size which does not appear to be an option.

There are known problems with the Windows Media Player 7.0. Your best bet would be to uninstall and and revert back to an older version. There are no real reasons to upgrade to 7.0 at this time.

It would be nice to figure it out, but I gave up on the 7.0 a while ago. Too many headaches involved with it.

Under the performance tab you can try:
Digital Video (DV) settings
Use this slider to adjust digital video resolution. If the video is analog, the slider has no effect. If you resize Windows Media Player so that the viewing window is larger than the original video, then Windows Media Player attempts to stretch the video to accommodate the resized window. Adjust the slider all the way to Large to enable the video to add additional pixels when stretching. This is easier on the CPU, but may create less than desirable video quality. Move the slider all the way to Small to minimize video distortion. This will force your CPU to work harder to render the video.

Wmp7 will reproduce the video with the settings according to the ones it has been recorder. You won't be able to resize both the windows and the video size all together
the window will change but the video size will remain the same. New video compresors, like Xing will allows you to set the resizing property when genetaring the video, an it wont allows quicktime or wmp to resize the image, thus conserving original quality.
The same with Wmp8, which is now available for download along with nine new decoders.

WinAmp 7 has been patched to a point where it is now viable to use and does not crash. However the resizing will not happen and least not with most videos, some will resize but the quality goes way down. WinAmp 8 has the same effect.
