I do a lot of work in Windows Movie maker, A LOT :) Just recently, I went to go through my system to get rid of un-needed files. When I clicked in one file under MY VIDEOS, IE either gives me a message, "Windows needs to shut down", something like that, or it just shuts off completely. Also, when I try to import from my video file into WMM, it shuts down. At one point I did get a message about a Dr Watson Post Mortem Debugger error, but not really since. Can you help? :)

I had a problem back in July, but can't recall off the bat how to get and send you a copy of a "LOG?" Please help when you have the time. My last posts, I thought "Rip Chain" had dropped me, and I was upset. But NOW I know the rules :) , and will wait patiently. Thanks to anyone who can help me. Deb =)


*Also: just remembered, When I try to delete a file in my Video's section, it says it can't because a Thumb.db is being used by another file or person, please close all (Whatevers) and try again......I dunno what that is. And there's also something refering to a "iggydeppflv." that's doing something. Argh!! LOL Thanks =)

Windows XP Explorer has a 'feature' to provide a preview in the Details box on the left of the file you have selected, if itís supported. Image files, HTML pages, video clips, MP3s, etc are all previewed (even with the folder view open).

If you have a large movie clip and it either is corrupt (ie. no index from a partial download) or it uses an unsupported codec, then Explorer tries to load the whole file. This can slow your computer a lot and prevent deleting/renaming/moving/etc the file until itís finished.

Simply do the following:
  • Click Start, then Run, type regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll and click "Ok".
  • A window will pop up saying that the file has been unregistered successfully. (If you don't receive this window, or the window gives an error, then please post that in your reply.)
  • Reboot your computer and see if the problem persists.

Did that, and this is what popped up:

RegSvr32

Unrecognized flag: /

Usage: regsvr32[/u][/s][/n]//i[:cmdline]]dllname
/u - Unregistered server
/s - Silent; display no message boxes
/i - call DllInstal passing it an optional [cmdline]; when used with /u
calls dll uninstall
/n - Do not call DllRegisterServer; this option must be used with /i



What do I do now? Thanks for responding. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I do charity work, and we've been real busy.
Thanks again. Will be waiting for a reply. :)

Hi there, thanks for the speedy reply. I did try it again, rebooted, and I stil get an error message saying
"windows has experienced a problem and needs to close" any time I go to that particular file to open something.
What am I doing wrong. sorry to bother you so much. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks Deb

Is it just only one file that this is happening to or one type of file?

What version of Windows Media Player are you using? Is Windows Media Player your default player?
