Hi, I've noticed that one or more of my video codecs on Windows XP is broken and I could use a little help in troubleshooting/fixing the problem.  The problem is the colors are all inverted with lots of pinks/teals/greens.  However, the audio works fine.  So, the problem is usually observed when viewing streaming video, but now I have a wmv file saved that I can use to troubleshoot with.

Right now I've tried using GSpot v2.2 to locate the problem with the file and any of my codecs.  The only codec that I get a problem was the WMAudioV9 which is audio, but this file is WMAudioV2.  The file is detected to be that of mime type: video/x-ms-asf, yet it can't detect the FourCC.  I've tried reinstalling XVid and DivX codecs, but that didn't seem to help.  I'm kinda drawing dead here on ideas.
