Default Video and Game problem

Help!! I can't watch videos in any of my video players and play certain games, for example, Minecraft and 18 Wheels of Steel: American Long Haul. I can watch videos online, but not in fullscreen. This has been bugging me for months and I've tried updating my graphics and video card, reinstalling Java, and doing a system restore. I think it might be a virus, but I have Norton 360 Premier Edition and it's kept my computer safe since I bought my computer. Somebody help please!!!

Note,
It either shows up with a black screen or a blank screen (basically, I can see the program behind it

That is most like your Net speed or throughput. What is your ISP speed?

What are your system specifications?

If you want to check your PC for malware/spyware/viruses go to Spyware Asylum, select your operating system and Full Scan. Follow the directions carefully.

You'll need to start a thread in this section to post the .log files and get them checked.

@ zeldagtafan900, Please don't double post, if you have something else to add to the conversation and no one has posted a reply since your last post (within a 24 hr. period), please use the edit button (looks like a pencil) to add it to your previous post.

Your pic isn't showing any useful information. Download CPUID and HWMonitor and then post a screenshot of all the tabs if you want to give us a clue on your system.

Here's a guide to posting screenshots Screenshot Tutorial

Did you run through the Full Scan at Spyware-Asylum and post the log files?
