That's not going to do anything positive. Uninstalling codecs has always
been a headache in Windows, and putting in a random collection of codecs
that stomps on other *working* codecs is just a bad plan all around.
Codec packs remain horrible. You are always better served by simply find
the specific codec you need and getting it direct from the vendor, ensuring
you get the latest and (or?) best version of that codec.
Sorry: I work in this field, and codec packs are pretty much the number one
source of problems. If we all just walk quietly away from them, things
would run a lot smoother. =\
Speaking for myself only.
