    First, I will never understand how people can use a computer with file extensions hidden. Is this first file in your screenshot a movie?

    Maybe it is a corrupted file that causes Explorer to crash. Seems Explorer cannot generate the preview of one of these pictures or movies (movies are most likely).
    Would try to create a subfolder and then move the video files there. Since you can't open the F:\ drive you'll have to do it from a command window.
    Click Start - Run - type: cmd
    Now type the following commands and press Enter after each line

    F:
    md a\b
    move demo250.* a\b

    These commands create a subfolder a with another subfolder b (to avoid the thumbnail preview on the folder picture) and move the file demo25o.??? into this second level subfolder.

    Now try to open F:\ in Explorer and see if the problem persists. If so repeat the last command for other files to hopefully find the culprit.

    If this doesn't help at all we'll have to think about another solution, CHKDSK perhaps.
