    Try Classic Media Player?

    What are you using for a Video player? WMPlayer?
    If so, try Classic Media Player.

    Sounds like the Windows Media Player Codecs might be all messed up... Trouble shooting some sort of reinstall would be another suggestion.

    If Classic Media Player works, I recommend using this as your main media player.

    or you can try to update the present Video Player that you are using. As sjsn says the codecs might be messed up or you don't have the upgraded version to run the latest ".avi" files.

    That`s the old thumbnail preview problem.

    Windows trys to show thumbnails of vids and pics,only

    it crashes Explorer in the process.

    To turn off previews -

    Go to Start/Run/and type - regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll click OK.

    to turn them on again(if you want to) regsvr32 shmedia.dll

    You can copy and paste those into the run box.

    Youi can also cure it by getting Divx video player
