We don't have enough information to give you focused help. This link
will show you what details you need to include in your next post:
However, a big red flag goes up for me when I read this - "must be a
codec or something I installed" - because one of the prime ways some
very virulent malware gets into a Windows system is when the user
downloads and installs dodgy codecs. So you should definitely address
whether your machine is virus/malware-free as a first priority.
The First Question Of Troubleshooting: what changed between the time
things worked and the time they didn't?
The Second Question of Windows Troubleshooting: what is the
malware/virus status of the machine? If you think it is clean, what
programs (and versions) did you use to determine this?
Be sure the computer is clean:
