  1. (help) avi files cause explorer.exe to crash

    i already tried this:

    Start > Run > type regedit and press enter

    Navigate to:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

    If there is an entry in there with the name DivX in it, delete it.

    Now navigate to:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyHandler\
    Delete the value (default). It will then appear as an empty value.

    Close the registry editor and reboot your computer


    there are no DiX entry on the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

    & i can't delete the default on this one: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyHandler\

    i aslo posted this here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?p=275802 coz i'm not sure where to post this...
