  • You have problems with programs
  • Error messages
  • Recent changes to your computer
  • What you have already tried to solve the problem


Follow these steps to remove corruption and missing/damaged file system repair or replacement.

Run DiskCleanup - start - all programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Cleanup

Start - type in the search box - find command top - RIGHT CLICK – RUN AS ADMIN

generates in Windows Vista cbs.log

Then, run checkdisk - schedule it to run at next boot, then apply OK your way out, then restart.

After the above, you need Codec - get these if 32 bit Vista.

-Free - CCCP also get free tool of insurgents

FFDSHOW - free

Check here:

Plug-ins for Windows Media Player


VLC needs, of no use so usually Codec as a backup when asked to support associations of files just say no.

VLC - free


If 64 bits and you need codec.

Read this 1st and go that route, or use the one below.


If 64-bit Vista - can run WMP in 32 or 64 bit mode.

Or try these: download - SAVE - go to the place where your put them RIGHT CLICK – RUN AS ADMIN.

For 32-bit use these - OR those listed above that I prefer.

K - Lite Codec Pack 5.0.5 & K-Lite Codec Pack 5.0.5 update

Use them for 64-bit:

K - Lite Codec Pack (64-bit) 2.6.0

You know that you use WMP 32 or 64

Change, change or set 64 - Bit Windows Media Player 11 (WMP11) in Windows Vista x 64 as default


And you can use it when necessary because no codex is usually required.

VideoLAN - VLC media player

I hope this helps.
