    Every time i use certain video applications, watching on the net, or downloading, sometimes the videos will play with a very weird color scheme, much like you would expect from looking through infra-red goggles, but using blue and green instead, it kind of reminds me of trying to watch a video using only the primary colors. Here is a link of a screen shot of a video i just downloaded, i have attempted playing it with DivX and WMP but both have the same problem, i would like to also point out that i have never experienced this problem with quicktime, only WMP, DivX and other random players on the internet.

    P.S. Sorry, cant seem to link a pic, when i try and copy a screenshot to Word 07 the actual video keeps playing in the screenshot until i close WMP, at which point the area where the video was on the screen (in the screenshot) is now dark, as it would be at the very beginning or end of a movie.

    any help is greatly appreciated!

    Try installing the latest video codecs. I would recommend the following link to the k-lite codec pack (and I would also recommend download the FULL version, and not the basic). During installation, installing the included "media player" is optional, and it wouldn't hurt to let it install to try it out. It can be uninstalled later if you don't like it, but it's a simple interface that loads fast and handles video very well.
