Would you mind sending me the directshow file please?

Put it somewhere where you usually install new programs. Then execute the following commands in Start -> Run:

regsvr32.exe /u c:\windows\system32\
regsvr32.exe d:\path\where\the\new\file\is\

The first path assumes that you have WinXP with default settings. Adjust accordingly if you have Win2k or Win98. You could also overwrite the file in Windows directory, but the system file protection in an unmodified NT system will stop you.

If you have successfully updated the file, you'll get this dialog box after right-clicking and calling up Options -> Filters -> MPEG Layer-3 Decoder. It will clearly say 1.9 (Build 311).
