Have you tried doing a system Restore ? Does it also happen when using another browser?

Thankyou for everyone's response I have found the solution! At first I thought it was due to Spybot's immunization function so I undid everything and uninstalled it. But the problem persisted so this time I went checking the codecs I installed. I went to Win7codecs and the 64 bits version, unchecked both "Shark007 SUGGESTED settings" and now everything works like it should.
