Okay, so I have this folder where I keep a bunch of wrestling and fight videos and up until two days ago everything was fine. Now, everytime i go in the folder, explorer crashes. At first I would get this windows installe pop up for a program called "pictureviewer" so I just hit cansel a couple of times and it went away. Well, now I cant even open this folder without a crash. Any suggestions/advice?


********UPDATE*********
okay, so before i had it in thumbnail view, well i switched to tile view and now there are NO crashes!!!!!!! Whats going on????????????

It seems likey to me that in Thumbnail view Explorer was being asked to do more than was supported by the file types. Imagine trying to display an entire video as a single compressed photo. And your folder has many of them! No wonder Explorer gave up. Details is usually best for this type of file anyway. Under "View" you can "Choose details," and get lots of different information about your files displayed.

nope, the only thing i've done is installed the AC3 codec. I dont see why that would cause a crash, it should actually allow me to view MORE videos.

I think I would check the file extension associations for those videos just to be sure.
