Hi everyone.
Through Jaksta (audio/video recorder), I recorded many youtube clips which automatically go in to "My streaming video" folder. It was working fine for long time. Last week I downloaded more clips from youtube and the downloading folder started to freeze also in explorer. Removed jaksta for now but still freezing, Did chkdsk c: /f /r which helped a bit since there was some issue with other clip in different folder so now I can open the "My streaming video" folder but freezes after clicking any clip in that folder. I tried to delete last clips I made but it freezes after right clicking or even before I slide down to see it properly.
Thanks for tips.

One possibility: If your system slows down or freezes when you open a folder that contains large video files, it could be XP creating thumbnail views of all image files (jpg/mpg/avi/tiff/gif/png/etc.) in that directory. If the video files are large, it takes a long time for XP to read the file and extract a frame to create a thumbnail from. You can stop XP from doing this as follows:

Use ShellExView to disable 'Video Thumbnail Extractor.'

Thanks for reply. I done it but it still freeze the pc. When I close the window to return to the desktop it removes all icons (From the desktop) for about 2-3 seconds and then they come back. The issue started all the sudden after downloading some youtube clips (not large). The downloader had some troubles to record it so I had to delete and record again till it was fine. I tried to remove those clips in safe mode and they weren't even displayed. Restore wasn't enabled so I was stuck on the day I recorded those clips. I wonder if there any other path to get to those clips so I can exterminate them. Thanks

One way: How to Create and Use a Linux Mint Mate USB Flash Drive

Linux Mint Mate is very "Windows" like. Use it to delete the files you want to get rid of.
