Hi,

I recently had a Winfix Malware on my Windows XP. I fixed it with help from the security section on GeeksToGo using HijackThis and VundoFix. Since then I have been having problems playing videos in internet explorers (I use Firefox more than IE).

When I play videos from websites such as ...

http://www.totallysh...om/media688.htm
http://www.nothingto...og_to_a_Funeral
(these are just an example)

.... I get a message window saying:

npdsplay x

! Can not create DirectShow Player

OK

(the "x" in top line being the close button that appears on every windows message)

and the video does not appear. In IE no message appears and the player window just stops loading with small red cross on top left corner.


I can play videos on websited such as YouTube and GoogleVideo and can play videos from all sites by downloading (if allowed) them and then playing them in Windows Media Player.


Please help me with this minor problem.
Thank you very much.

Regards
Blacksky

Try reinstalling DirectX 9.0c (unless you have windows 95, then it is 8.0).

The above link will take you to the download.
