    Had exact same problem,
    Got rid of SP2 (needed clean install anyway...)
    No more problem!
    Since then I found out SP2 breaks all DivX codecs.
    (I use DivX 5.2 Pro)
    Their latest codec (5.2.1) is required, and is the only one SP2-compatible.
    In 'fixes' they provide a perfect description of the problem - just like you said.
    Now I have installed DivX Pro 5.2.1 but I'm still sticking with SP1a :)
    I will wait until all the little freeware/shareware programs & utilities I use come to be up-to-speed with SP2.
