    Default Explorer Help

    Here's the issue, every time I open certain folders with videos in it (perhaps porn) or even try to open certain pictures, it gives that typical Explorer is having issues and needs to be closed(You know, the send error report thing?). Well anyways, how do I fix this?

    Least I could think (and my mind's a bit tired now) is that if you have your folder set to display thumbnails or similar, it could be a codec issue. It's a longshot, but try reinstalling whatever codec pack you may have installed. I personally use CCCP, but K-Lite is adequate too.

    Only other thing I can think of is that you could reset the folder settings. Is it only a particular folder, or any folder that has video files in it? Worse comes to worse, you would have to do a repair of the OS. Try the codec thing above first though. Best of luck.

    No problem. My first guess was that your computer just didn't have any codecs, or at least the proper codecs to render the video. One last suggestion, if you would be interested, is that I've heard ffdshow is a good up and coming video renderer. It's been around for a while, but I've just recently heard about it being pretty decent by itself. Just my two cents. And you could always just skip the codec packs and use VLC player for everything, but that's more for the ease of portability.

    Glad you got it working.
