CompGeek Question

Alrighty! For those of you who download movies/TV shows/whatever (I'm in Europe on a studyabroad and I wanna stay current on my shows), what program do you use for playing .avi files in ye olde Windoze XP?

I nearly killed my WMP searching for codecs; I've been using VideoLAN's VLC media player for over a year, quite successfully, but recently it's started getting VERY buggy, eating up my CPU, randomly being a complete shit, etc etc etc. I've tried the uninstall/reinstall a few times, and it doesn't seem to have helped. Can anyone recommend a better/less buggy/less frequently retarded player?

EDIT: I INSTALLED DIVX. THE MOMENT I OPENED IT, MY CPU USE SOARED TO 100% AND STAYED THERE UNTIL I REBOOTED.
