I have a folder in which i keep my film files (avi, mpgs divx etc)

when i access a file in this folder i get an installation program start for Ace mega Codecs Pack- Pro XP starts up and havoc ensues

I run mc`afee constntly and have scanned for virus`s but nothing found

downloaded Norman virus detector nothing found
used Sentry and nothing found

But I still keep getting Ace Codec starting up

Gone into search for Ace Codec and there is nothing found

Baffled? any help appreciated

have you checked your registry for ace codec?,but make sure you back up your registry,before deleting anything,and also create a new restore point before removing anything.

Just type it into google and it will take to to the site for a free download. It is good at finding/clearing/preventing installation of nuisance programs

If you follow rowdy suggestion, then I would also suggest that you add Ad-Aware, for further safeguards.
