    I tried to play the movie Ocean's Twelve using Windows Media Player 11 (WMP 11). I had already just watched some portion of it in the morning, and was looking forward to watching it again. Its a .avi file. In the morning, the movie was showing perfectly, just as usual. Right now, however, the video is blurry in areas where people are moving, and NOTHING I've tried can fix it. I played the same file in Realplayer, and it was blurred again. When I played it using VLC Media Player and DivX player, however, the movie showed perfectly, with no blurriness, just like in the morning. But it was still blurred in WMP 11. I tried other movies (all .avi files) in WMP 11 too. Some of them worked normally, with no blurriness, totally clear, but others were blurred too. All the blurred movies in WMP 11 were blurred in Realplayer too, but not in VLC and DivX.
    I looked it up online, but there's nothing useful. I'm downloading my graphic card's latest driver, but I'm not completely sure that will fix this.
    Earlier in the day, after the afternoon (when WMP 11 was working perfectly), but before this point, a file called "wudfhost.exe" was removed by Norton Antivirus as it was performing suspicious activity. I put a new version of the file from another computer, and this one was safe. Is this related?
    Please reply as fast as possible, please, I really like my Windows Media Player, and completely prefer it over all the other ones, so PLEASE help me.
    Thanks for your time... please reply!
