It all started a couple of days back, and I don't remember if I installed any new Multimedia Software Player or Codecs update etc... Below is a little bit detailed description of the problem.
AMD Athlon XP 2600+, 1.5GB RAM
Win XP SP2 + Latest Online Updates
NOD 32 Antivirus, Zone Alarm Firewall, BPS Spyware Remover, Ad-Adware SE
Note:- I have scanned my system multiple times with above softwares but problem is still there.
When ever I run any DVD using Cyberlink Power DVD it plays normaly. When I stop it and close the Player, it simply hangs the windows and I have no other choice than pressing the RESTART key the same happens with most of Media Players like VLC Media Player, BSPlayer, Zoom Player etc... when I play video files. I noticed that this doesn't happen with WMV files but only AVI. Also files problem doesn't happen always but only some times on the other hand playing DVD is every time.
I think mainly it has something to do with Intervideo WinDVD Player, which I use sometimes. A couple of days back, I tried to update it and found this error (plz see the below pic) . Since than I have tried to completely remove and reinstall every single Multimedia Software and Codecs but problem is still there. Also now when ever I try to install same old version of WinDVD I still face the same error in the below pic.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance and here is the error pic of WinDVD installation.
