Oh well. I can play all the videos, I can drag one out onto my desktop as that error box taunts me, everything works fine except Explorer crashing and closing all open folders I simply got rid of the offending AVI(s). navigate here What will solve this problem is unregistering media preview.

Are you still having shmedia.dll not found error. I got a cheap 160 gig to replace the old 80, and now everything works fine. - Qlippoth 01-18-2005 02:03 AMQlippoth Feedback I had the same experience with XP explorer crashing is it a bad file or ??
