I disabled it on purpose thinking it might fix the issue, but nope it doesn't. What's even weirder is that I also cannot find "Multimedia Settings" on my other laptop but both have different programs and anti-virus installed. Is this some kind of Windows Update? I've already done a system file check and the results were all good.

Hmm that seems to have solved the problem, thanks! Does optimizing it for video quality also impact on the performance of VLC Media Player? I don't like using WMP as my media player.

Good, glad that was it. I doubt you'd see much difference. VLC is likely optimized to run on any settings. But I could not confirm one way or the other. A Guy
