Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

My computer runs Vista Home Premium, and Microsoft Internet Explo

\015 I also get the problem when running explorer on my own machine. It freezes up and I have to either reboot or run task manager. Does anyone know the solution?\015

Answers :

It may happen when you open a particular folder specially when that folder contains videos (.avi, .flv) downloaded from net. These files lacks properties within them, and explorer tries to get properties with its inbuilt properties handler. You can solve this problem by disabling windows desire to "decode" the file when reading it. I \015\012think it is actually trying to determine width, height, etc. This reg \015\012tweak makes windows stop scanning the avi files.
\015\012
\015\0121. Open up regedit
\015\0122. Goto \015\012HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\\SystemFileAssociations\\.avi\\shellex\\PropertyHandler
\015\0123. Delete the "Default" value
4. Restart the system.

\015\012hope this helps.
This tip (which will probably fix it) will remove some functionality \015\012from windows explorer though, more specifically if you try to \015\012use the properties menu of the file to identify the codec, or check it's\015\012 resolution then you won't be able to do it with this key removed from \015\012the registry.
\015\012
\015\012Make sure you export the key before deleting it so that you can restore \015\012it if you want to.
