    I have tried to download DivX player, yet when I try to install I keep getting a "critical error" message directing me to download a different (offline) installer. When I do this, it very nearly downloads then I get a "download interrupted" error. I feel like I'm going round in circles!

    I've done a bit of searching through google and the critical error seems to be a pretty common problem, yet I can't seem to find a solution. I'm running Windows 7 Home on a 4 week old laptop. This is the only time I've tried to install divx on it.

    I'd appreciate any help at all!

    Thanks for your response. It's the same installer, have tried just installing the codec pack a few times but still get the same error message.

    Can you provide the exact error or a screenshot?

    You could also simply switch to a different media player. I use KMPLayer, but VLC and MPCHC are also free.

    Try downloading from a different site. MajorGeeks.com is a good one.
