Let MBAM delete them then delete the folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\HDvidCodec.com

I like to use the free VLC for video. It never seems to need codecs. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

Thank you, it was the course of action I would have taken but wanted to be sure - I too use VLC but from memory it needed the codecs for some reason anyways, will do as suggested and thanks again.
