I have a problem with this pop up window that contains this certain message: Lame MP3 codec  V 0.9.2 - 3.99.5. This window shows up on certain sites like MLB.com and redsox.com, in particular. I cannot close the window, it doesn't respond and locks up the computer. It is very frustrating. It shows up nowhere that I can find on downloaded programs or when I search for it generally on the computer. I have read other fixes on the web and none of them have work or I just don't understand what they mean on how to get rid of it. I recently loaded a couple of DVD burner programs, but have since removed them and still have this problem. Can anyone help with this issue in a simple way? I am running windows 8 (which is horrible!) and I have an ASUS computer.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Try to disable the add-on from the Internet Options.

a.  Open Internet Explorer, press the Alt key and then click Tools.

b. Then select Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab and then on Manage Add-ons.

c. In the list of add-ons, select LAME MP3 codec and then click on Disable.

d. Press ok and restart Internet Explorer to check if the issue reappears.

 

I've never had this issue myself, but I'm assuming this will clear things up.

This did not work. Lame MP3 codec was not there.

I'm sorry about that, but as I say, I've never had this happen to me. Is it possible to go to your Control Panel / Multimedia / Devices tab and look under "Audio Compression Codecs"? All your installed codecs should be listed there. You can re-prioritize them, disable certains ones, or remove individual codecs.

Or, you could search your machine for "lame.dll" (without quotes), as I am led to believe that the codec, and it's pop-ups, are held on a single file. Delete this DLL and restart, and this should stop the pop-ups.

IMO...appears to possibly be corrupt k-lite codec pack situation...I would uninstall current version and then install the latest pack.

 

Other possibility...malware, depending on where you downloaded the codec pack from.  The Lame version number you posted appears to be severely dated.

I recently loaded a couple of DVD burner programs, but have since removed them and still have this problem.


I have three questions:

Did the problem exist before you loaded those DVD burner programs?

Did the problem exist while you had them?

Did the problem appear only after you removed those programs?

I did not have the problem previously to download of burners.

I think they were there while using the burners, but did not pay attention or do much internet surfing while burning dvds.

I did just reinstall the windows codec programs and it has seemed to work for now.

Thank you for the help, hopefully it will stay working like this.

Please help again! I thought I had this problem cured, but guess not. The Lame 3 codec pop up window still comes up and freezes up the computer. I removed and reinstalled the windows 7 and 8 codecs and still have this problem, especially when I click on any videos to play. This is very frustrating! :smash:  I also removed ffdshow. Not sure what else to do and what I did to cause it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you!
