    I;m running windows 7. when i try to open my videos, and open RealPlayer Downloads folder with flv. files inside, after a short time a message pops up that windows explorer is not responding and has to shut down. this happens every time i check the files. A friend told me i probably have a virus. I've seen other people with this similar problem too. Any help would be appreciated.

    Can you play other flv files? Have you scanned your system for virus's and/or malware?

    I agree with Oddba11. I had similar issues before but since I started using Norton the windows explorer hasn’t had such problems.
