    When i play AVI's in Windows Media Player I used to be able to adjust the brightness from within WMP "Show Enhancements". I have the slider bar option, but sliding it darker or brighter does no good. As soon as i slide it one way and let go of the mouse buttun it just goes back to default. Anyone have any suggestions? I have tried reinstalling Codecs. No luck. Im acutally using no codecs now and still get the same results.

    Granted, I don't really use WMP, but from how I understand your post it says "used to", to me that means it used to work, but doesn't anymore. Pardon my moment of stupidity :)

    If that is the case, I wouldn't really finger codecs, but you can re-install WMP itself. If you go to Control Panel -> ADD/REMOVE programs, check the box for "show updates", you should be able to remove WMP10, which essentially does a rollback to WMP9. After that, feel free to re-install, and that should fix your problem.

    try using the skin quicksilver and hit the drop down arrow. It can be seen here. (scroll over its on secopnd monitor). See if it works in that.

    * the skin is in WMP10 so you shoudnt have to download it.
