    Hello everyone
    I'm having a problem playing AVI files. Whenever I try to do ANYTHING with AVI files (right click, rename, delete, play, click ON it, etc.) explorer.exe crashes.
    When I try to play, this happens..

    To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.

    The error report.. no clue..

    Error signature
    EventType : BEX P1 : explorer.exe P2 : 6.0.2900.2180 P3 : 41107ece
    P4 : unknown P5 : 0.0.0.0 P6 : 00000000 P7 : 02fa2370
    P8 : c0000005 P9 : 00000008

    No clue what these are..

    C:\DOCUME~1\JON~1.SAP\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER5e57.dir00\explorer.exe.mdmp
    C:\DOCUME~1\JON~1.SAP\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER5e57.dir00\appcompat.txt

    Funny thing is, when I play these in Media Player Classic, they play fine and explorer doesn't crash.

    Help anyone?

    Try this link. Should download XVID codecs. Make sure you scan foe viruses and spyware.
    http://www.xvidmovies.com/codec/
    What media player do you use? It may need updating.

    Thanks so much for replying, you don't know how much I appreciate it.
    I'm using windows media player 11, but half the time I can't even get it open before crashing. It's clicking on the videos that messes it up.

    Sounds to me like ALOT of conflicting codecs.

    A few suggestions, remove all your codecs and reinstall just the ones you need. I mean personally i would just download a program called: VLC Player. This has its own built in codecs so does not need system codecs.

    If you don't want to do this or it does not solve the problem then i would simply disable the video preview in explorer.

    1) Open a command window (Start->Run, type in 'cmd' hit enter)
    2) Type in:
    regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll
    3) Hit enter
