I noticed this after I used Revo Uninstaller to uninstall AVG 2012 so I could install AVG 2013.

That way, the correct codec pack can be installed without wasting too much time.

It works fine with flash, but just not the media player.

Otherwise, I still get the "server execution failed" when I try to open mp3s or nothing opening at all for DVDs. Verify that you have access to this location and try again, or try to find the installation package 'Shreder64.msi' in a folder from which you can install the product Shredder."

Do you mean you turned windows media player off in windows programs and features? For some reason now it keen asking me if I want to save the xxxx.asx link as a file (which I don't). It still won't open and says that I'm missing the codec. Now try media player and it should work.

so i guess you downloaded the new WMP11, i had it in XP and it worked fine, next time right click on the video file and select then navigate I tried a system restore just now to the earliest point I had (last week Thursday) and WMP did open.
