Every time I attempt to play an AVI file it just plays sound and I don't get a picture. Any ideas why this is???

the file is probably using the new XVID codec to render the video. click here to get the codec.

It may still not work, if not then you need FFDShow also which will sort the problem. click here to get that...

leave XVID installed prior to installing FFDShow

I too have AVI's that WMP can't download a codec for, and quicktime doesn't have the required ceodec either.

Quicktime says the video format is "DX50"

is this DivX 5.0 ?

the download for DivX 5.0 includes GAIN ad-ware, is this harmful ?
