hi, i am having 2 problems with video i suspect might be related:
both started at or recently after i had to reboot my windows from disc due to a massively debilitating virus/malware attack.

1. I am no longer able to play divX webplayer movies, if i try to stream divx in FF or IE it instantly crashes my browser.
My stand alone divx player works fine. I have tried reinstalling divx several times and even tried an archive version with no success.

2. When i am watching full screen streaming video the video will without cause minimize to small screen, the video continues to play.

I have updated all my drivers ( i think) as i suspected my video card as the culprit..but so far no success and i am really annoyed at this point, especially since divX videos are one of my fav formats for web vids....and the minimizing screen thing is driving me crazy...please, please somebody more knowledgeable than me help :flowers:

I run XP home, FF and will supply any additional info needed.

thanks :thumbsup:

I saw your other post and you may still be infected. Even if you're not, this kind of thing is frequently an after effect of the malware. So there may not be a solution short of reinstalling Windows. I don't know what you did about the malware, if you had help, posted a Hijack This log etc. but the malware is the likely cause of your problems.

ok, to rid the original problem i rebooted from disc and then ran an antivirus.antimalware program..it currently claims to be clean. I didnt really get any help doing it other than asking a few computer savvy friends opinions.

should i post a hijack this log?
or try another antimalware program?
or just go for the reboot windows?

ok, i ran another malware/virus program other than the one i have/had and it says i am clean.
Is it possible that it is not a virus/malware causing my problem?

I will go thru all the steps listed in the malware section and post both reports if you think that is needed.

i have a noob question: how could a virus leave traces after i rebooted from disc and reformatted my hard drive?
Doesn't that completely erase the hard drive?

I think you should post in Am I Infected and get expert help.
