Question regarding codec conflicts

I seem to have a problem of conflicting codecs and Im wondering if anyone can help me resolve it.

My AVI files kept giving me Windows Explorer errors and crashing the windows I was trying to view. I did a Google search which revealed this seems to be an issue with the Xvid codec and uninstalling Xvid would fix the issue.

Well, technically it DID indeed fix the issue. I'm no longer having crashing errors, but now Windows Media Player is playing all my AVI's upside down.

Another Google search tells me this is due to the LACK of Xvid codec.

Has anyone experienced this and if so can you tell me how you fixed it? I'm going insane here running around in circles of conflicting logic.
