Windows 7: videos appear zoomed out in Firefox, IE 9 and Windows Media Player

Generally for stand alone codecs I reccomend Shark007's codecs. I myself use Media Player Classic and the Klite codec pack. I don't want to cause you any conflicts however. If your Media Player Codec Pack shows up in Programs and features, you could uninstall it and try Shark007's codecs (he is also a member here).

Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs

It is still odd about battery/ac difference. It would seem it must somehow be power plan connected?

There is also the insurgent app by the guys that make the cccp codec pack. It will scan your codecs looking for conflicts. It will also give you a complete list of what codecs you have etc..

I downloaded the insurgent app and ran it, but I do not know what to look for.
I tried the Shark007's codecs before and it didn't help, but to honest with you I don't remember if it was before I created a new user account. I will uninstall the media pack that I now have and retry the Shark007's codecs again and see what happens.
Still bugs me about why everything works alright on battery power. You guys are being more of a help then HP thats for sure.
You don't think it could be hardware issue do you? My thoughts are if it was it would do it all the time on battery or ac power and do it in all media players.
A strange one thats for sure.

If you know what to look for after my running the app suggested I have attached the log file
cccp.insurgent.scan.txt

I uninstalled the Media code pack and installed the Shark007.net – Windows 7 Codecs – WMP12 Codecs and lost the ability to watch avi videos in WMP again, so uninstalled it and reinstalled Media code pack and everything works, but the usual wmv and mpg in WMP.
Thank you for the suggestion though

I tried Media Player Classic just to see what it does and it acts just WMP 12 wmv and mpg videos zoomed way in.
VLC works perfect no matter what I play in it.

Just thought I would update you
Your ideas are appreciated

it's hard to tell when you are using unfamiliar images in the videos but did that change anything at all?

No it didn't change anything the video and window stayed the same. If I reduce to 50% the window gets smaller, but video is still zoomed in to far. Video being paused on battery power is what it should look like on ac power.
