CODEC Reset Utility 4.1

The CODEC Reset Utility has been developed as a troubleshooting measure, to return your DirectShow Filters registry values back to "factory defaults" (a clean slate, if you will). This should almost certainly solve the problem if the problem is with a CODEC. This utility helps you remove key registry references to all DirectShow Filters (AKA CODECs) from your system and reinstall the registry references for only the ones that come with a clean install of Windows XP. This utility was designed for Windows XP SP1 and Windows XP SP2 and now has support for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. The 32-bit version was designed and tested with Windows XP Pro (32-bit), but it should also work with Windows XP Home Edition. Other versions of Windows XP exist; however, we don't know if or how well this will work on them. (Note: You should assume you have a 32-bit version of Windows, unless you know you do not. The version of Windows you have has no relationship to your CPU; in other words, if you have an AMD Athlon 64 CPU, do not automatically assume you have a 64-bit version of Windows).

Please note: This utility assumes that you have Windows installed to C:\WINDOWS. Also before making changes to your registry, be sure to have a backup or Restore Point handy in case something doesn't work.
