I don't see more than one version of shark that says anything about one messing up default codecs?
It is recommended that you install x64 components as you system is 64 bit..

Ok, they must have changed it then.

Last time I checked was a few weeks ago.

This is what it says on his Site.

MKV playback is fully supported.

The Win7codecs package which I have created does not change or interfere with what Microsoft has going on concerning native codec support in Windows Media Player 12 and Media Center.
DXVA accelerated H264 playback is provided by the codec package for all other capable players.

The latest release contains a new Settings Application which enables the user to choose a different splitters 'on the fly' for specific filetypes. The application will also allow you to choose from 10 different speaker configurations from 'same as input' and all the way up to full 7.1 channel output.

So I think I'm ok there.. Thanks for the input guys. I'll give it a try. Also it said it uninstalls other codec's. I have a few add-ons for foobar2000 as I listen to my FLAC music with that, it wont delete that stuff will it? I sure hope not
