I need to know how to fix this problem. It never seemed to appear before. I have had Windows Media Player 11, Nero 7, Divx, FFDShow codecs before but it started appearing even after a fresh install of Windows XP Home, SP 2 and I am wondering if there are Microsoft updates that are causing this or the newly installed FFDShow codecs. So I am going to look into it but it seems to happen after I play a video and close it.
