    Hiya

    You won't be able to convert it to AVI, as its a different format altogether.


    Do you have RealOne, or RealPlayer?

    You may also need the DivX codec:

    If you didn't have the DivX, that may have improved the quality.

    However, as you already have it, lets look in detail..

    Is it playing fuzzy or is the colour poor? Is it a long film, as in hours, rather than a few mins?

    You may want to make sure hardly anything is running in the
    background, and a cleanup:

    Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

    Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

    Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
    Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
    Apply and OK

    Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

    For this, go here and get the Spider:

    Go to Run and type MSINFO32
    On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

    Also, go here and download AddAware http://tomcoyote.com/lsindex.html

    Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

    Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

    Also, which version of DirectX are you using? Go to Run and type DXDIAG. in the first tab will be the version number.
