window explorer shuts down when opening certain mkv files
Hi i just wanted to post this becuase I think a lot of poeple have this problem,
When opening certain mkv files that i knew where not viruses my windows would automatically shut down. The whole folder would become usless and i wasnt even able to delete it. i was getting the message, windows explorer is shutting down then it woudl restart. I searched everywhere on the internet to find answers and did everything from scaning my comp for viruses right to comtemplating touching my registry but the answer was so simple that i feel like such a dumb a** for wasting so much time on this.
A lot of poeple said stuff about fixing the thumbnails and i actually tried it but i un ticked the wrong thing so it didnt work but if you are having this same problem this is how I fixed it.
I opened up a folder that was usable and went into the top left hand of the folder and clicked organize, then i went into folder and search options and then clicked view.
now the first time i did this i unticked display files on thumbnails thinking that was what people meant, when really i needed to tick the very top option which is always show icon, never thumbnails
This is for windows 7 but you can find the same folder options on vista and so on.
I i hope that this at least helps someone because i wish seomone had told me this two days ago and i would have saved myself a lot of time and effort
