Ever since I downloaded a torrent for SEGA Virtua Tennis explorer.exe does not boot on start-up. Using Ctrl+Alt+Delete I can still get it to load via the task manager, but obviously this is not the way it is supposed to be.

What's more, there seems to be a problem with the graphics card or video codec, as no videos will play in either Windows Media Player or VLC Media Player. I can hear the sound, but there is no accompanying video. When I double click on photos, I also do not see them.

So I guess that the video drivers or codecs from the game screwed up my system. What should I do to solve this?

Had same problem and found that the MSIEXEC was jacked up after the system was hit by a Virus (AV, AIV, AV2009, AV2010)

What to do
To solve this, re-register MsiExec:
1. At the taskbar, select Start|Run.
2. Type
3. Then type
No visible change will take place. However, if you run the setup program again, it should now work.

If this method fails, you will need to reinstall the Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI). Consult the Microsoft website for details of how to do this

Then - Reinstall your antivirus and Scan your system.
And check system with a Anti-Spyware app like Spybot.
