    Hi all,

    My first entry in this forum.

    I use Easydivx 0,81 for DVD ripping.

    Everything went well with 3.11 codec until I installed the Divx 5 codec. This baby is quite experimental, causing major crashes on my laptop.

    S I tried Divx 4.12 and XVid as alternative for codecs.

    To no avail. Ripping with EasyDivx failed with no sound. So deceided to remove all codecs.

    I tried the following:

    Removed from the 3.11 codec and 4.12, 5. X the add-delete control pannel.

    I tried to remove from the multimedia pannel, but if I try to remove them, they reappear in the list.

    I deleted some files (dll´s) from the Windows 2000/ system32 directory, like the divxdec.ax, divx.dll and divx4.12 dll.

    Still 4. 12 and XVid reappear in the multimedia codecs overview.

    HELP ME!!! Please advise.

    Try manually unregistering the DivX codecs from the command prompt.
    Eg. regsvr32 /u divx_c32.ax (in the windows\system(32) folder)
