Fix: Windows Explorer Crashes in a particular Video folder in Windows 7


  1. Or you could do this:

    Start – Run – regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll

    This will disable video preview of all movies, and you could keep the view mode that you like for folder contents.

  2. This isn’t a “fix,” this is a work-around. You didn’t fix the problem, you just found a way to ignore it. One real solution is to uninstall the optional Windows update KB2670838. On PCs with certain motherboard configurations, that particular update causes Windows Explorer to crash when loading video folders. This update causes numerous other problems, too.
