Fatal Error Video Codec Needed

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I need help on this error:


Fatal Error! The media system on your computer is corrupt. Update your video codec immediately to resolve this issue.

It keeps popping up on my computer screen. When I click on OK or hit the exit button, it will re-appear again simultaneously.

I don’t know which media system is corrupted and which video codec is needed to update. I am running Windows XP Home Edition. My entire media players and media files are working correctly.

Is this some sort of a rogue virus?

How would I know if I am having one?

Please help.
