Re: Win-Vista MovieMaker DEP / Codec error
Yes - had truiied changing DEP settings that before posting this question - didn't work....
reinstalled codecsdownloaded MSFT site thinking rogue codecs werer at fault. Problem log indicates a specific dat t started happening which may be linked to an update sent by MSFT for Windows Defender.
