  1. Can't run any video players

    I think it was this file i downloaded that caused this problem but i can't run any movie file (Window's Media Player and Quicktime). Whenever i try to run it, it slows my computer down severely. My screen turns black and then turns back to normal. I can only watch videos are through streaming sites like Youtube. The only way i can get it working again is to reboot my computer. This "virus" (i think) doesn't affect my internet or anything else, just my video player. What is the problem because i really want to watch videos through the movie player again. Please help!

    Hi adamn041692 and welcome to techspot. =)

    I suspect it may not necessarily be malware related problem. Have you tried posting in the Windows OS section?

    If you wish to have your system checked for malware, post a HijackThis log as an attachment in your next reply. The latest version can be downloaded from the link in my signature.

    Your friendly momok =)
