Hey FiZZ52,

Welcome to 7 Forums!

First, you only have 1GB of ram, and that doesnt work well at all with Ultimate.

What type of graphics card do you have? Please fll out your system specs in full and let us know.

Thanks,
Ben

Are the correct drivers installed and working properly?

It may be a codec problem. Try Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs . If after applying it still the video is not up to the mark, you may have a second thought about your drivers.

Another question, does the red color looks the same in both WMP and VLC , or VLC displays somehow better than WMP ? If the second one is true, it is definitely a codec problem.

I do a fair bit of video work and will plump for low RAM causing this problem but just in case try downloading and installing Media Player Classic from here;
Media Player Classic - Home Cinema - Video Player
It's free and the best player I have come across.

Mi Mitchell , have you visited this thread ?
what is the best out and out media player
It's very difficult to verdict a single one the best ( as you are much experienced , you may feel it better than me) . But if you are talking about K-lite codec pack bundled with Media Player Classic, I will vote for you
