How to Repair AVI Files on Windows 7?

“When I try to play an AVI with VLC media player on my Windows 7 computer, occasionally I get a warning popup similar to "This AVI is broken. Seeking will not work correctly. Do you want to repair it?" I clicked on OK and VLC started to fix the current AVI. But this fix has not done enduringly. The next time when I started playing, the same AVI warning/error popped up again. How do I permanently repair the AVI index and change it inside the AVI container? Is a complete re-encoding really necessary? Any tool that can do the needful in fixing this damage to AVI file? Thanks in advance!”
