I've had this problem for awhile, its mainly just a really annoying one, whenever i look in a folder with alot of video files, it basicaly reloads explorer, like the screen goes to just my wallpaper, and it reloads the startbar etc, I have tried changing the view options to list but it reloads before i can save it. Any ideas?

Backup the registry first.....just in case.

Might work might not.

Avi files (divx) can be trouble in xp. there is a fix to let xp behave much better so it's possible to move or delete large avi files. The obnoxious bug in XP that causes Explorer to read the entire contents of broken AVI files before allowing any access to them is caused by bad behavior of shmedia.dll.

To correct this misbehavior in Windows XP, remove the following
registry key.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREClas
sesCLSID{87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}InProcServer32

This will prevent Explorer from loading shmedia.dll in response to file property queries on these files.

Just an extra note, if you do a "search" for this key it will not be found, look for it manually it is very easy to find.

Leaderz0rz, this is the common, often used, fix for the problem. Just rightclick the key first and choose export. If you are unhappy in any way with the change you can always merge back the reg file you created this way.

Btw Hipster, if you collapse the folder tree in regedit until only "My Computer" is shown a search should find the key.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
