GSpot is a utility that is able to identify exactly what codecs are required if you can't play a video file you've downloaded. It will inspect the file and tell you which video and audio codecs have been used. Point it to the file you're having trouble with and it will get to work. Gspot will also produce information about the file it is inspecting.
You can also use it to view the list of all the codecs and filters you have on your computer. It shows in details what you have and also some of the bad codecs and filters. Any filter highlighted in RED is supposed to be bad. You can go through the list and look for them if you have any. Check their properties and you will see the location. You can go there and delete it!
