I'm using Windows Media Encoder from M$ to fix a broken WMV file. I tired using VirtualDub 1.3c (the last version that supports ASF/WMV due to legal reasons) and it can't open the file because it can't find the filter. If you can suggest a better program I'm all ears.
Hey, just to let you know that i had a Q6600 myself and didn't feel like i was really using it to it's full potential so i sold it and bought an E5200, well i must say im not disapointed, the E5200 does everything i want it to do easily, i overclocked it to 3.6ghz and im also running a 9800gtx+ for video card and score 14500 in 3dmark06 so no botleneck there.
