Default Media file problems.

Hi all. I am using XP Pro and I am havin serious problems viewing media files in the following programs. Windows Media Player, DivX, and VLC. The only thing that does work is quicktime, but I can't convert things to work there. The video's do play, but when they are viewing, the screen is blurry and the color distorted. Any help would be GREATLY appriciated. Thanks.
