Nero7 and WMP10 : Problem with Mpeg Video

I installed Nero 7.2.3.2b after uninstalling Nero 6.6. Now Windows Media Player 10 is unable to open / play mpeg video files because the default video codec in WMP is changed to neresize.ax. If I delete neresize.ax from C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSFilter, WMP reverts to its original codec and plays the file. My questions are :

  1. What does neresize.ax do and by deleting it, will Nero continue to function properly ?

  2. Why should Nero 7 make neresize.ax the default video codec for WMP ?

Any response appreciated.

having the same issue myself. is there a way to change what codec WMP defailts to?
