Cant play my .avi movie bcoz of a new codec named "NiceCodec" which can be downloaded @ http://www..

I wanted to see a movie on my pc which i downloaded from torrent site.
In the .NFO file was saying that if I downloaded the movie from a torrent, and cannot be played, not to worry and to download this codec.

I also have installed K-Lite and AviCodecPack but still nothing.

Now the problem is, that this NiceCodec, is not so nice, coz -propably- my security Antivirus or something else, have locked the file and cannot run it.
This happens much when something is infected and I dont know which program is causing it.

Point is, that I want to see the movie!!!!! LOL

So...
1) What program or windows file is locking my files when are infected? (the popping up box says that i must have administrator rights to run it, and i am the only Admin on this computer-and only user also)
2) Is there another codec for it?
3) If I go and burn this .avi to a DVD will it play nicely on my DVD player?


Please help!


Thank you in advance, if you have any question please shoot! :thumbsup:

As far as I can tell nicecodec isn't nice, nor a codec at all and wont help you watch any videos. Sounds like malware to me. If the nfo says to download it then don't trust the nfo.

Installing many codec packs is also a good way of messing up your system, and I don't trust K-Lite. It has pirated codecs and stuff. Uninstall both. Then install the nice, lightweight CCCP.

If you still can't play the file try GSpot. I scans and identifies the codecs used in an avi file.

If GSpot can't make heads nor tails of your video file then it most likely isn't a video file at all, but just bait to get you to install the malware in nicecodec.

I unistall my previous packs and installed the CCCP (btw i like it, its clear and has options)...

Didnt work.. :trumpet:

Then downloaded the Gspot and it said nothing for the file...

You were right. :inlove: It was bait and I am stupid :flowers:



Thanx for your help, I appreciate it :D :thumbsup:
