  1. Every time I try opening a video file I get the msg "explorer.exe has generated problems and willl be closed" something along those lines.

    I tried searching for solutions but got no luck, any ideas on what I can do to solve the problem?

    This is an old,old, problem,unfortunately.

    The brief explanation is that Windows tries to create thumbnail previews
    of videos,but crashes for some unknown reason.

    The brief solution is to go to go to :

    Start/Run/and paste in - regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll then click OK.

    That turns off previews.More solutions HERE
