Hi, recently i downloaded some divx films from bearshare. Everytime i play them on either media player or divx player my computer reboots. I've watched DVD's on my computer without any problem but these divx films arnt working.

Any idea on how i can fix the problem?

Thanks

Hi. Do you see a blue screen flash for about half a second? Have you made any changes to the system since it was fine?

hi, thanks for the reply. No i dont see a blue screen flash. Recently i had a lot of spyware and infections which i have now cleaned up. Sometimes when im watching the divx films the computer will reboot about 2or 3 times through the whole film, other-times it will reboot every 2 mins

Yep, you can watch them, but we will not assist in any way. Thread Closed.
