  1. Hi,

    I encounter the problem whenever I open specific folder. I'm new to these kind of things so... any solution or help? If you need further details please tell me and state what kind of details you want and how I get those details to you.

    The problem makes me so annoyed!

    Thanks in advance!

    What version of IE are you running? Have you checked for a virus infection?

    How long have you had windows 7? If you upgraded to windows 7 did you have this problem before? How much memory do you have installed?

    Well I figured out that Media Player Classic caused the problem. Media Player Classic is myy videos with .mkv extensions' default video player. The folder which I opened and caused Window Explorer stop working because of MPC. I changed default player back to WMV and it's no problem anymore.

    Anyway, thank you for those who helped me. :)
