XP explorer crashes on thumbnails of video

June 12, 2009 at 20:36:03
Specs: Windows XP
My XP is an SP3 version 5.1.
I have tried all the tricks I have found online, here among other places. None of them helps on my pc.
Not the - HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyHandler Delete the “Default” value then close.

or the - Remove this registry key:

I'm currently using the regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll solution, but this is annoying at best not being able to view thumbnails.

Does anybody have another solution to this problem?

One of the articles on another site http://jsbi.blogspot.com/2008/09/ho...
solved my problem. The problem was evidently a video codec om some kind.
I installed the latest K-Lite Codec package and all my troubles were gone.
Thank you SysLock for the link, it was not there I found it, but I wouldent have gone where I went without that link.
So thank you for that.
