Uninstall the codecs now, reboot and install Shark's pack. That should do it - hopefully.

Are these .avi's your rip's or someone else's - they may have been improperly encoded. Leave ffdshow show then.

a few are mine but most are others. i can get audio with ffdshow and ac3 filter installed but it is still a little jumpy. not as much as when only the shark pack is installed. removing the sound card helped a lot for some reason but it didnt completely fix the issue

Have you installed the latest chipset drivers? Not really surprised the sound card was problematic.

Solution here is to use WMP for everything except .avi's.

either that or i could clean install. but i really dont want to deal with that again because i have everything how i like it now. i will probably re encode the .avi's to .mkv its about half and half of each format so i might as well make them all the same.
