Sony Vegas 7 issues - plug-in error

I'm having issues with my Sony Vegas 7.

Basically when I start the program I get this message:

warning: An error has occurred while loading the project file [projectfile.veg]
An error occurred while loading a plug-in or plug-ins. The plug-in(s) specified are not installed on this system.

If I hit the "details" button I get: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 - Transition

Does anyone know what this means? Since this error started occurring, the program doesn't seem to recognise the video part of avi files anymore. It reads them as audio only. These are files that worked perfectly earlier and that until this error I was using quite happily. (mpeg files still play normally.)

I have tried: (1) reinstalling the program (2) updating and reinstalling DivX codec bundle (3) downloading and installing ffdshow (as suggested by another helpful vidder, but alas no change).

That's pretty much the extent of my computer knowledge. Obviously something changed in my system, but I have no idea what and I'm just... stuck. Can anyone please help?

All suggestions welcome. I really want my program to work again. :(
