Yes, I understand you want WMP to work, but I'd like to know if this is specific to WMP or if it's generic to any media player. Try VLC and let me know if it works or not. You can uninstall it after if you want. This is just a test.

Hi, my friend, i did the test and i discovered something new!
The video files that got "problems" reproduces ok in wmplayer on w98.
Also reproduces ok with VLC but shut wmplayer down on Xp
And (curious thing) the same files closes the windows explorer (reporting an error) when i select them with the mouse!
Just by selecting them it causes the explorer to shutdown.
It seems to be a problem between the files and wXp, or the security system on Xp.
Wha do you think?

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.
