    OK. I'm in Firefox, I click a Megaupload link to download a video. While I'm downloading, I open a window to look at another video in the same folder I'm downloading to. As soon as I open the folder, "Explorer.exe has made an illegal operation and will be closed. Send bug report?" I click "Don't send", then all folder windows plus the start bar disappear, then the system automatically restarts the process. This will always happen.

    Does This Happens With Other Folder ? Or Only With Folders Containing Video !

    Tried during a mp3 direct download. No problem

    Tried while getting a rar from rapidshare. No problem.

    Now, tried again with another video from MU. Failure. As far as I can see, the problem is with the folder in which I am downloading. The rar I d/led before had a video inside, and I put it on another video folder. No problems.

    Go To Start > Run > regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll

    You Should Get A Message Like This

    ---------------------------
    RegSvr32
    ---------------------------
    DllUnregisterServer in shmedia.dll succeeded.
    ---------------------------
    OK

    shmedia.dll --> Media File Property Extractor Shell Extension

    regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll --> Unregistering 'shmedia.dll' Stops Windows indexing your 'mediafiles' while you are browsing your folders.
