I've recently been receiving this error message everytime I open AVI files that I've recently downloaded: Windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Then it shuts down the opened window. I've scanned for viruses, malware, etc. None whatsoever. I've tried reinstalling certain programs that allow me to view AVI files, and still no luck.

Please help!
