              It's not thatI didn't want your help...it's just kind of funny when ever I ask for help FRODO is usually the first one to reply within about 10 min of my post...Somehow I feel like he is my computer gardian angel. I'm just taking inventory from everyone to see if I can get a consensus.

              I DO appreciate your help!!

                  99 times out of 100, then yes...

                  [Rant]

                  But the funny thing is, when I was fiddeling around with a unattended XP install I couldn't get all the codecs/filters I wanted to install silently (well, not in a estetic way anyway) so I made my own codecpack based upon one guys guide (and he knows what he's talking about) and a few other things I wanted in it (dvd-codec and Media Player Classic)...

                  Now, if I'd tell people that I installed this and that, configured it in a certain way, then fine... separate codecs are cool and if you know how to configure them then you're da man.

                  But if I'w tell 'em that I installed a codec pack, well, they really don't listen to what it contains or what it does because codec packs are evil, end of discussion.

                  In general codec packs are a good idea, the problem with Nemo, K-Lite and others are that they keep growing and growing to meet everyones needs so you'll end up with loads of different codecs, many of wich you'll never use.
                  Then you have (pardon me for saying this) the less experianced users who install nemo, then have a file that wont play, so they install K-Lite as well, and there the problems begin and all codec packs get a bad reputation.
