    Whenever I view a folder which contains video files, and then I right/left click on any of the video files (usually divx 100mb+ files), an error message pops up and I have to restart explorer.exe. I have WinXP SP2, and this is really starting to annoy me. Does anyone know how I would start about fixing this problem?

    Have you changed your video drivers recently, or previous to the problem starting?

    It's not too common, but a couple of nVidia drivers came out in the past that caused explorer to bog down and made viewing videos terribly slow. If I remember right, the last driver that affected me like that was 56.64.
