    "Cured Windows"

    July 06, 2013   |   By rchpjf

    Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

    Pros

    Windows 7 Media Center after some update stopped playing a lot of my avi files. I spent a lot of time researching a cause and/or fix because I did not want to download any more codecs because I had done it before and it made all my videos play with less volume. I finally gave up and tried this one. It not only now plays all my files again but without any loss of volume. Thanks!

    Cons

    None that I have found to this date.

    "Didn't accomplish what I wanted - nothing has."

    September 04, 2012   |   By GATOR-HATER

    Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

    Pros

    I installed because a upgraded to a 64-bit system and found that
    Machete Lite thinks all AVI files are corrupt. But it didn't promise
    it would and it didn't harm my system It IS NOT malware as some have implied.

    Cons

    None that I have found.

    Summary

    If it helped I didn't notice as I could play and edit my avi files
    with several players and editors. But it certainly didn't harm anything. So I rated it 4 stars because that was the average rating.

    "Allows Adobe to read and play older avi files correctly"

    April 15, 2011   |   By gary12x

    Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

    Pros

    Works for me.

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet.

    Summary

    I am able to revive my old avi files which would not play or open properly in my Adobe production applications (After Effects and Premiere). This is a great service to offer this free download. Thanks CNET!

    "Works Great for what I wanted!"

    February 12, 2011   |   By Hardwaretech

    Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

    Pros

    Fast download, easy to install, allows me to play avi files with windows media player.

    Cons

    None found so far

    Summary

    All I wanted was to be able to play avi and hd video with windows media player and this "fixes" the problem that shouldn't even exist. Microsoft should package this or something like it with media player. In short, it works and doesn't mess up my system.

    "Works fine"

    April 05, 2010   |   By the_annoying_one

    Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

    Pros

    It's FREE, easy to install and includes all codecs for main stream media

    Cons

    Nothing bad at all

    Summary

    Another user stated they had problems, but anyone with any experience of codecs knows not to install 2 codec packs at the same time. It's kind of like putting water, screen wash and petrol in the fuel tank of a car.

    I also took the recommendation from another reviewer to test the .exe on virus total (virustotal.com) and it showed as clean.

    "Same Aw Window Codec Pro - Will Not Uninstall"

    March 17, 2010   |   By dirtknocker22

    Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

    Pros

    Once installed my movie maker and nero now lock up. Mouse opens everything with one click. Cannot uninstall the program. Says its uninstalled but all files still run.

    Cons

    Way too big an installation for just codec files. Messed up my system and will not uninstall. Says it uninstalled succesfully but all the files are there and run if clicked on.
    Malware as far as im concerned. Same as Windows Codec Pro Pack

    Summary

    If you install it you will have it forever as it will not uninstall although it indicates it did.
    My mouse, Nero and Movie Maker are now messed up. No telling what else is going on yet. Wish I had never tried it.

    "Just a normal codec pack"

    January 22, 2010   |   By lovelyl1976

    Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

    Pros

    It seems alright, Just a normal codec pack. If there is a virus just don't download the toolbar, those are full of virus's and spyware.

    Cons

    Doesn't have as many codecs as other free ones have. Better off with Cole2K media pack and switch on AVI.

    "Last reviewer is a liar"

    January 19, 2010   |   By InnitYeah

    Version: AVI Codec Pack Pro 2.4

    Pros

    The package tests as clean on the site the last reviewer stated.
    Users who wish to verify this for themselves can simply download the file, go to virustotal dot com (sorry can't post a link here) then upload the file to check.

    Cons

    None that I'm aware of
