I can explain the problem in details now. When I go to this folder (which is in the pic) or in other folder (containing big video files). I have the problem.
When I open some folders nothing happens first (not dllhost.exe run) but as soon as I click on one of the files (even just with the left click of the mouse) the dllhost.exe appears on the task manager and it grows up very fast ...

But now (I think since I've added the ddlhost.exe in to the DAP exception list)

http://www.howtogeek.com/wp-content/...image00221.jpg

It stops at 1 562 420 then disappears. But the second I click on another video file, it appears again and do the same thing.

But with the DAP exception it seems to be stoped before freezing.

Well if you don't have a better solution, nevermind

Thanks.
The only thing I can reccomend is to do a repair install because something has went corrupt with it...it is memory leaking bad!

I have Windows 7 since one week, and it's an upgrade from Windows Vista, and I have another problem by the way (my start menu programms disappeared) so you think it's an install corruption ? Are you sure of that ?

Can I do a repair installation if I mount the DVD of windows seven on a Virtual Drive ?

Thanks.

I would believe so...If you can than I would consider first a complete format (if you can back everything up first...). If not than do a repair install; Don't worry as you will lose nothing in the process.

Yes I know I already did some repair in older version of Windows. Never on Windows 7, do you think it can work if I mount the DVD on a virtual drive ? As I have some problem I think it's the better idea. I can't format as I have too many thing to backup. Thanks.

Hm...interesting theory...I actually upgraded from XP to Vista with a mounted ISO on the XP partition. I would imagine that a repair install could be done the same way...but (unless another member could attest to this) you are going into uncharted waters...so backup first!

Does the memory spike when you have the web server shutdown and browse to the said directory? You could also try a sfc /scannow before doing a re-install.

/Scannow: Scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files.

Good suggestion (I actually forgot this...). OP try this first before going the way of format/repair

Ok I'll maybe create a new partition with my free space and install Windows 7 on it, after having replaced it by Ubuntu on my actual partition.
Then I'll merge the partitions. It's like making a format without loosing my files

Very interresting the /Scannow, I completely forgot that (since I never use it because it never worked on my XP).

What do you mean by the web server ? The internet ? Or it's because you've seen a "Apache HTTP Server" on the pic I posted ?

Thanks.

I believe he was talking about the Apache HTTP Server shown...but as I posted do the /scannow first and post back the results

Ok I've just closed it, and that didn't change anything.
Anyway I'm doing the /scannow.
