Hi, my first time here and I really hope I can get some direction as I have already done an XP install to try and fix my existing OS and I really do NOT want to do a clean install.
The files that are corrupted are the ones that I copied to my hard drive, DVD movies. I had a trojan recently that may have caused the issue, not sure but when I did a registry check I did see that files had been corrupted as well as my “Open With” files.
Here is what hapened, I Downloaded and was using the free AVS DVD player, but couldn’t get full screen so, I installed aPower DVD 5 since I had the disk already. I then set the files to “Open with” Power DVD and that where the problem started. The first 4 files of all my movies will not open with power DVD. The only way I can play them with PD is to click on one of the following files and watch a piece of the movie at a time. 2 of the first 4 files will open (evidently those first for are what plays the whole movie) with AVS so I can watch the movies.
The main problem is that from then on out, all movies I put on HD have the first 4 files corrupted or they can only be played with AVS. I cannot use Open With to get them to play with another player, nor will they play when I drag and drop them into anything but AVS. FWIW, here is a shot of how the files look now.
Thanks for any help.
