Sherlock - The Codec Detective helps to determine the codecs installed on computer and check to see if any of the codecs are broken.
Audio and Video playback problems can often be caused by NOT having the correct codec installed on your computer, or even the wrong version installed...

Now you have an easy-to-use, spyware, adware and cookies free tool, wich let you check the availability of codecs in Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional and Windows 2000 Pro.

The important thing to remember here is that YOU do NOT need to understand what this software DOES!

You just RUN it, click the SAVE button and it CREATES the TEXT file automatically...

All YOU do then is email the file OR "copy and paste" the contents of the file to whoever is providing you with support! Couldn't be easier!
