I recently got a better graphics card(Geforce 6200 PCI), installed Divx then uninstalled, I did delete some nVIEW files(I was trying to fix this pop-up at the start telling me about the SLi features), thats about it.

When you say your machine freezes, what happens? Does it just lock up or can you access certain icons?

try uninstalling the card in device manager ...let windows "find " new hardware and reinstall the drivers and any thing else on the CD that came with the video card

lets try this...get powerdvd they have a free trial..it will install some codec's that you may not have...if you decide you like it DONT buy it..for less than the cost of the software you can buy a dvd burner with powerdvd and nero bundled with the burner...

Already have powerdvd and just installed some codec products, apparently the codecs aren't the problem.
