Install and Remove CODECS and MCI Devices

  Microsoft Windows 95 Microsoft OEM Service Release versions 2, 2.1
  This describes how to install and remove codecs and Media
  Control Interface (MCI) devices in Windows 95.
  Codecs are used to play compressed files by decompressing them in
  memory. Adding a specific codec lets you play files compressed in
  that file format. Removing and reinstalling a codec may solve
  problems playing a particular file type.
  MCI devices are drivers that provide Windows 95-based programs
  device- independent capabilities for controlling multimedia
  hardware and software. Removing and reinstalling MCI devices may
  solve problems playing certain files.
  Adding All Default Codecs
  To add all the default codecs in Windows 95, follow these steps:
  1. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
  2. On the Windows Setup tab, click Multimedia, and then click Details.
  3. Click the Audio Compression and Video Compression check boxes to select them, and then click OK.
  4. Click OK.
  Adding a Specific Codec or MCI Device
  To add a specific codec or MCI device, follow these steps:
  1. In Control Panel, double-click Add New Hardware.
  2. Click Next, click No, and then click Next.
  3. In the Hardware Types box, click Sound, Video, And Game Controllers.
  4. Click a manufacturer in the Manufacturers box and a model in the Models box, and then click Next.
  The following table lists the codecs included with Windows 95:
  Manufacturer_________Model
  DSP Group___________TrueSpeech Software Audio Codec
  Intel_________________Indeo R3.1 Video Codec
  Indeo R3.2 Video Codec
  Microsoft Audio codecs_ADPCM Audio Codec
  CCITT G.711 A-Law and u-Law Audio Codec
  GSM 6.10 Audio Codec
  IMA ADPCM Audio Codec
  Microsoft Video codecs RLE Video Codec
  Video 1 Video Codec
  SuperMatch___________Cinepak Video Codec
  NOTE: Microsoft PCM Converter is installed by default.
  For MCI devices, click Microsoft MCI in the Manufacturers box, click the model you want in the Models box, and then click Next.
  The following MCI devices are included with Windows 95:
  CD Audio Device
  MIDI Sequencer Device
  Motion Video Device
  PIONEER LaserDisc Device
  VISCA VCR Device
  Wave Audio Device
  If the codec or MCI device you want to install is not listed, it was
  not installed by Windows 95. If the codec or MCI device was included
  with another program, reinstall the program to reinstall the codec or
  MCI device. If the codec or MCI device is located on a driver disk,
  click Have Disk and specify the location containing the files.
  NOTE: Unlike the other MCI devices, the Mixer Device cannot be added
  manually. This device can be added only during the installation of a
  Windows 95-compatible sound card driver. When it is installing the
  driver, if Windows 95 determines that the driver can support the Mixer
  Device, it installs the Mixer Device along with the sound card driver.
  5. Click the Finish button.
  Removing the Default Codecs
  To remove the default codecs, follow these steps:
  1. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
  2. On the Windows Setup tab, click Multimedia, and then click Details.
  3. Click the Audio Compression and Video Compression check boxes to clear them, and then click OK.
  4. Click OK.
  The default codecs, with the exception of the Microsoft PCM converter, are removed. You cannot remove the Microsoft PCM
  converter.
  Removing a Specific Codec or MCI Device
  To remove a specific codec or MCI device, follow these steps:
  1. In Control Panel, double-click Multimedia.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. To remove an audio codec, double-click Audio Compression Codecs, double-click the codec you want to remove, and then
  click Remove.
  4. To remove a video codec, double-click Video Compression Codecs, double-click the codec you want to remove, and then click
  Remove.
  5. To remove an MCI device, double-click Media Control Devices, double- click the device you want to remove, and then click
  Remove.

I should had said this in the letter, but I tried that already I used MS Knowledge base and that is what it told me.  I do it, and nothing.  I restart and nothing.  Y?
