Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate x64 bit

i new in the forum and i wonder....

my AVI preview are gone for some specific reason (read in my post for more info if you wish)... does it mean i need to download the "AVI" reg for it?

also why do i need to press right click and on Merge when i can just press twice left click and than "ok" ?

(p.s feel free to help me out here if you can codecs problems... with AVI)

Hello Egozi,

You could give the AVI download a try. It will only set it back to it's default associations.

You could right click on the REG file and click on Merge, or double click on it to do so. Either way is fine, I just chose this option since people's single/double click settings to open file may differ.
