Ok, so I've been using the Shark007 codec packs for years now, and I just tried updating by reinstalling using the MajorGeeks download path provided by Shark007 on his website. After installation my browser is totally fubar (ads asking me to update my media player even popping up even on google's home page, prompts to install download managers, runaway pop-ups, etc.).
So I will never use Shark007 again. But am looking for a LOW IMPACT codec pack that is as easy as Shark007 USED TO BE.
Any suggestions? I haven't used CCCP in several years, because of the same issue.
Assassin, I recommend you re-evaluate your HTPC setup guide since Shark007 is now installing hi-jacking spyware/adware.
