They probably get corrupted somewhere a long the way. How big are the files sizes?

What player do you use for playing. Try VLC - if that gives you the same problem, we will have to look at your graphics driver.

My MSE detected: Adware:Win32/Babylon. Wants to get rid of it.

Its the first false positive MSE is known for. The newest virus definitions mistake the Babylon dictionary/translator as a virus. If you have Babylon installed, don't let MSE remove it. If you don't have it installed, it is indeed malware and needs to be removed.

Have MSE quarantine it. It does not sound like a real nasty, but you do not want to take a chance.

I have a dell 410 XPS dual core 1.86gh processor with a geforce 8300 device that works fine with win XP pro but when I install a full copy of win7 I loose performance because the videos stick and stop. I am thinking it must be the video driver for win7. Any help would be appreciated.
