this isnt really the place to ask this, but im not sure where else to do it. anyways, my problem is whenever i seem to run a video player other than windows media player or any games on my computer, my system locks up, im not sure what could be doing this but i really need help to find out why its happening. i have recently reformatted and ive done scans with antivir, SAS and MBAM which have found nothing, but maybe something is messed in the registry or something, im not really experienced with these kinds of things so i dont know what to do. and to be more exact, ive tried running both VLC player and GOM player, VLC freezes my system right away and wont even open, GOM opens but when i try to play a video it will freeze my system and just trying to open any of the games seems to make my system lock up. everything else on my computer seems to be running perfectly fine though.
