Oh the agony, I am encountering the inability to play AVIs, MIDs, MPGs, DVDs, WAVs, MP3s... You name it, I can't play it. Every time I play a media file, whether it be in Windows Media Player, Cyberlink PowerDVD, Intervideo WinDVD, iTunes, Video Lan Player (VLC), etcetera, I get error 80040154: Class not registered.

Installing ffdshow, does not work
Reinstalling Windows Media Player (11), does not work
Reinstalling Direct X does not work
Reinstalling Windows Media Codecs does not work
Attempt to reinstall Cyberlink DVD only resulted in grief, with a whole list of files saying that they could not register properly.
Updating Miscellaneous Audio Drivers did not work.

Is this a Windows Fault? I don't wish to have to reformat the computer hard drive... HELP!

Really amazing what a 2 second search on Google will do, using your error number?
