divx playback problem

Hi all.
Since I reinstalled my XP Home, I have a problem playing divx files. I can see it all but when I leave the reader my computer restarts. It happens in Windows Media Player and having VLC. Is there someone who could help me?
thank you in advance

Re: divx playback problem

Does the PC is up to date? (Update, Service Pack)
Are you getting an error message, or the PC restarts without saying anything?

Check this, the automatic restart:
- Click on "My Computer", then "Properties"
- Go in the "Advanced" tab, then under "Startup and Recovery", click on "Settings"
- Uncheck "Automatically Restart"
You may have a blue screen crash to the next, post it here to see what it says ...

Yes the pc is upto date.
I followed the instructions and I had an error message on a blue background that said:

Re: divx playback problem

try installing the video codec(s) again - ffdshow is useful. Also Combined-Community-Codec-Pack-2007-07-22.exe. Disable dual-view - see if its that causing a problem...
