Thanks. I had seen that (in fact that was all i could find) but didnt really have time to work through it all. It did seem to point to my taking bit comet off as that seemed ot install some codec and even MPC which i already had.
what did work was doing a restore so that Bit Comet was put back on and this fixed it.
Its not the end of the world for now. I wont be using BC but it can stay on my PC for now.
Something else i need to work on tonight :-(

cheers again.
