    I am running an Athlon XP 1800+ with XP HOME SP3
    Avast antivirus 4.8 Home registered version
    Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE

    A couple of weeks ago I downloaded a movie using a P2P

    I put the movie into a folder with other movies

    When I open the folder the computer freezes for a few seconds with an hourglass pointer indicating it is working and then I get a window with the Dr. Watson postmortem debugger error message stating that explorer needs to close. After a few minutes it does not close and i have to manually close dr watson in the task manager window at which time windows explorer completely closes and re-opens.

    I went into the command prompt and manually moved the new movies to a new folder to see if they were the cause but now if I open any folder with movies in it, I get the message.

    I feel that the movies I downloaded were embedded with some malware possibly infected by the very people that make the movies to prevent people from downloading illegal movies.

    Here is a log from HiJack This if it helps. Can anyone help?
