OK, I'm going to try and keep this as non-chicken little as possible. So I reinstalled a fresh and pristine (semi-legal) copy of XP. I then used XPLite to strip out the components I don't need or plan to update manually such as XP tour, Audio codecs, and Video codecs, and direct X (I use XP Codec Pack). Well lo and behold when I try to play a video with VLC Player in OpenGL mode I get the missing OpenGL32.dll error. I turn to trusty google and see that most people say this dll should come with the video drivers. I suspect that the original dll was removed by my uninstallation of video codecs. Anyways, I manually copied the dll to my system32 folder and it works fine now, but is the Forceware drivers supposed to put the dll back in or is the lack of installation intended. I installed the 175.xx Tweaked version.
