for a second and then back to desktop screen.

After doing this if i want to close a window it will only close in the top right and not by clicking on the tab bar.

I went in to safe mode and all was ok, right clicking on avi file just brought up the menu as normal.

When i went back to normal mode the closing tabs at the bottom of the screen was fine.

When i tried right clicking an avi file the same problem was there. After trying the closing tab at bottom of screen again it won't work again.

So the problem with the right clicking on avi files is setting this off but both are doing my head in!!

I need help!!

It might be as simple as not having the right codecs for the .avi files. AVI is a wrapper that covers many different types of files, one thing Microsoft had to do in SP2 was disable the thumbnail view for avis beacause explorer was confused and would freeze up trying to make thumbnails. I remember this very clearly, and all the problems it caused. But also, if you download a little apply called GSpot and open your movie files with it, it will tell you what codecs you need and if they are loaded.
