Hi all!

I currently have a video on my disk in a folder (yes I needed to specify this :p ). My problem happens when I go into this folder: windows hangs, and when I hit CTRL + ALT + DEL I see drwtsn.exe running. When I close it down exporer just restarts. This problem happens with no other video file I have.

I have tried: renaming the video and the folder (done quickly before windows freezes) aswell as placing the file on another partition (though I can't do this because windows hangs when I try to move it).

I have a 'clean' computer meaning it's always kept free of viruses, spyware, adaware and all my security programs are updated and executed regularly.

This problem is pretty annoying as there are other files in this folder that I can't always access in time! Any help to solving this problem would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!!

Ed

What format is the video file? Do you have a program that will play it? Has it ever played? Have you tried booting up in safe mode and moving it to a folder of it's own / trying to play it?
