i don't understand whats causing the problem as i can't watch movies on my laptop anymore :(...

i have tried many video players like vlc, bs player and power dvd etc but the problem is still there.

portable seems less buggy as it doesnt hook into windows, i have had a few successes of using that over the install version

Seems like a virus in one of the codecs you installed. Did you scan them first ?

I would go with this, many codec packages full of bad stuff, and may have already messed up your system, which is why i use vlc
