Recently I have received a problem where I can't open a folder that has a gigabyte or more space used. I have several folders that contain a little less than a gb and they open and let me do what I want without any problems. When I open a folder with a gb or more it opens and lets me see the files and then I get a Windows Explorer popup saying that Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to shut down, I clicked the error report and this is what it says:
AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.2180 ModName: filesystemflags.dll
ModVer: 1.0.0.1 Offset: 00002ddd

And when I close the Windows popup I get a Dr. Watson Postmortem Debugger popup and I clicked the error report but it won't let me read the details, so I have to Ctl, Alt, Del to close the non-responsive program.

I have scanned the computer for virses and spyware and came up negative on both of those, so I don't know what is wrong or what to do to fix this. I have previously had folders with several gb's used when I was storing video to transfer to dvd and I never had this problem. Someone please tell me how I can fix this problem.
Thanks:)

Out of curiousity, do a search for filesystemflags.dll.

When found, right mouse, properties and see if any of the info under the tabs, identifies who/what this dll belongs to.
