    I have an odd problem - many of the MPG files I try to play freeze on the
    first frame, but the audio keeps playing in the background. I’ve tried
    downloading a few codecs, some work but I want the original codecs returned
    back to normal. I installed directx 9 must have changed a codec or modified
    something to stop these videos from being played.. I have reinstalled it but
    it still continues with the same symptoms. I have heard that it may be this
    (It is related to a new installation of a videodriver versus the installation
    (sequence) of the mainboard AGP driver.) I am not sure how to fix this if in
    fact it is the problem. I do not want to use another media plyer other than
    windows media player 10. I also do not want to install any codec that did not
    come with windows media player.
