My Video Files Keep Resetting after Pause:

I watch a video (usally avi file) and after I pause the video for a few minutes it starts over.

Anyone know a way to fix this?

re-posting for data loss from server crash.

Do you have a restore point from before this problem started you could go back to?
System Restore

If you installed any codecs you could try uninstalling those to make sure they are not the cause of the problem.

You could run a System File Check to make sure there are no issues.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also try turning off WMC, rebooting, and turning back on WMC to see if this will reset something to fix this.
If you do this I expect you will lose all your current configuration settings, customizations, etc.
Re doing those changes may be a bit of work for you...

hope this helps

Patched theme files resetting themselves?
So I've noticed that usually after a couple of weeks, my patched theme files seem to go back to normal. If I had a theme applied, it will reset to the classic Windows theme, and my logon screen will be changed back to the default. Anyone have any idea why this would happen?

resetting video graphics settings
I am running Windows 7 RC1 with an Intel G35 onboard video card. I set my monitor's brightness/contrast settings through Intel's software. Every time I restart the computer it resets the settings and my screen on bootup looks washed out. I know this may be due to the fact that Windows 7 is still a...
