If even VLC fails at the task that means there must be an underlying problem since VLC uses its own codecs.
Everything from here out can only be guesswork. So bear with me
What background processes are running while you try to watch movies?
How recent are your graphics drivers?
Is it the same if you try to watch a movie right from the DVD ?
Is there any chance the System overheats and chokes the CPU ?
How fragmented is your hard drive that stores the movies?

Try to address those possibilities and report back

At the bottom of the application is a checkbox for SUGGESTED settings, give that a try.
i tried that before and nothing happened .i feel that it is a system problem

Well let's have a shot at finding a offending driver, if you're willing.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
It's a bit involved though.

You could also try disabling your antivirus and firewall just while you playback video and see if it cleans it up. It really is just sounding like your system resources are going somewhere other than the video playback.

This is the type of behavior I see when trying to playback hd video on my old single core laptop. In that case it's the system just not being able to keep up. Your system should have enough under the hood to manage basic hd playback though.

If you chose to disable UAC (user account control) could also be reason for these issues.
If UAC was disabled and you're going to re-enable it to test,
you would also have to uninstall the Sharkk007 codecs and re-install them.

Just out of curiosity what does the performance tab in task manager look like when these videos are playing?

I'm glad you got it sorted but I'm still not convinced it was a sole codec problem...sharks codecs work here just great.

Thanks for the feedback
and good luck

Yeah, something is a bit screwy there, since most these codec packs contain basically the same codecs. It doesn't make a lot of sense.
