I tried to open some video files i have on my computer but my media player (gom player) would come up with an error and say this program required a missing windows codec. The same problem occurred when i tried to play with windows media player.
I ran malwarebyte and avast antivirus scans which have some removed some items. Yet now when i restart my computer it says this program required a missing codec.

The option that the program compatibility assistant gives is to go to the totalcodec.com website and pay to supposedly fix this problem.
Thanks
