Title: All-in-1 Malware Free Codec Packs
Post by: evilfantasy on March 24, 2009, 01:13:05 PM
Windows Media Player may be the most widely used player, but like many MS utilities it is sometimes inefficient. It lacks many popular codecs so needs some help with a third party codec pack.

There is a big risk when it comes to clicking on links to download a codec. Many contain malware that is designed to steal your personal information among containing other forms of malware that will slow down or even crash your computer.

If there is a media file that says it needs anything besides what the below codec packs include it likely contains malware!

One code pack may work on one computer better then on another so there is a selection to choose from. I use the K-Lite Codec Pack (full) and have never needed anything else. These are in no particular order. They are all worthy and trusted to be malware free.
