Hey guys. Whenever I open my "My Videos" folder to pick a movie/clip to watch it causes windows explorer to error and crash. It had been doing this for a while before but then it stopped and now it has started up again. I'm running a 2.4ghz P4 with 1.5gigs of ram and radeon9600 video card.

Have a look here

Furthermore you might want to consider do a cleanup of your computer. (Remove temp files) What kind of files are you trying to play?

You may want to check the eventviewer ( START RUN type eventvwr and look for red crosses right after you have had something similar. Post whatever is in there..

Further tips pending your reply to TG's questions

explorer errors, it doesn't give me a code or anything it just says that it has errored and needs to shut down. It's always when i open the videos folder where all my videos are. If i play videos from any other folder they're fine. When i checked eventvwr it says that the faulting module in explorer.exe is msyuv.dll if that helps

Which XP do you have Home or Pro? Which codecs do you have installed?
