Hey all,

Usually I have found all my solutions on here without having to post, this is the first time i have had a problem that I dont seem to be able to find a fix for :tazz:

The problem I have is all avi files on my pc are running terribly. This includes raw uncompressed avi's, divx, etc. I have no issues with mpg's quicktime or anything else.

The biggest problem for me is that even the rendered previews in premiere are running terribly, so I can edit and alt-scrubbing works, but once i render my timeline it has the same problem.

My two thoughts are the cpu overload when playing avi's or perhaps a problem with my dv codec if thats possible.

Running a amd 2400, 1gb RAM. This only started in the last week so its not since a format or anything, and ive been able to watch these same avi's before. (captured video)

Hope thats enough info for some help!
thanks

edit: forgot to add ive done an ad-aware,spybot,housecall and cleaned out a few of the things it found.

ok. uninstall all of your divx codecs and codec packs. reboot. run a defrag and download the latest codecs: http://free-codecs.com/ would be a good start.
