I have a problem with windows dreamscene. When I try to apply downloaded .wmv dreamscenes from sites such as dreamscene.org or and custom .wmv for that matter, it works but when I restore a minimized window and then if if i x out or go back to my desktop the dreamscene which is a custom .wmv is paused...when I right click to hit play dreamscene i cannot for it is already supposedly playing..and sometimes when apply a custom .wmv it experiences that problem and it will also sometimes cause explorer.exe to crash and then ask me to restart explorer.exe or find solution online? I don't think this is a dreamscene bug, so what is it?

Dreamscene isn't very stable, it's pretty but largely unnecessary. Are you able to run the Dreamscene content that is installed through Windows Update? Dreamscene pauses if Aero gets turned off, if a window is maximized, or if a game is started.

Oh yeah that I know, the thing the dreamscene content through M$ update works flawlessly

There could be an issue with how the WMV files you downloaded are encoded. You might need to download a different codec.
