Media Player 11 won't play .avi or .mpg files

Windows Media Player 11 installed in my system has suddenly stopped playing avi and mpg files. I did not had any issue in playing same avi and mpg files earlier, some file get played without video and just audio where as some file comes up with an error message saying “Media Player encountered problem while playing the file”. Currently i have updated all codecs but i can still not play .avi or .mpg files in Media Player 11.

What you see in windows media player Help:about:Technical Support Information menu tool? other than that remove all third party codec that you might have installed and check out if that makes any difference. You can try installing CCCP after removing third party codec and Don't forget to post details of your Technical Support Information menu tool.

Uninstalling all previous codecs and installing CCCP helped me out. I don't have any issue in playing .avi or .mpg files in windows media player anymore.
