My VLC Player has started to lag when I shall watch a movie. It started a week ago. I don't know why. Anyone who got any tip? Is there another media player who can play everything?

EDIT:
I've tryed to unistall it and reinstall it.

Are you running any other programs at the same time? Hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete and see if anything is being run in the background. If it looks like something that isn't important, shut it down.

Also, go to Start > Run. Type in "msconfig" and go to the Startup tab. Disable any startup programs that aren't 100% necessary.

Could be spyware related, or Trojan related. Likewise, you may not have enough bandwithe to buffer.

Ok. And if it would be a spyware or trojan, how do I get rid if it?

Get good antivirus and spyware programs. Go to download.com and get AVG Free and Ad-Aware. That's what I use and I've never had problems with those 2. AVG is an antivirus program, it's completely free and it works like a charm. Ad-Aware is for spyware, it's free as well and very reliable.

Also, try defragmenting your hard drive. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragment.

Media Player Classic works just as well, so does Zoom Player.

VLC would be my personal choice - although I'm sure what The San Tana suggested would be just as good.
