  1. I've read quite a bit about this problem in No clear cut
    answer. I'm going to try to install their beta version now.

    After installing the xvid codec, you can no longer even click on an avi
    file, it freezes everything up. Explorer crashes. It must have
    something to do with the Windows prefetch thingy. In some
    people said that uninstalling and reinstalling all codecs worked for
    them. I personally found that uninstalling the xvid codec returns
    things to normal.

    I can handle avi files with the preexisting divx codec, but I want the
    xvid for editing, since with the divx codec I have to save the finished
    product in divx format, and it's no longer in the same format as the
    original xvid movie.
