Third-party extensions: Can't think of one. In terms of installed software the two culprits that I can think of are Daemon Tools and EASEUS Partition Master 4.0 Home Edition but I've had them there since installing Windows 7 and made no changes to them recently...
Tried to see how else I can recreate the issue. Opened a folder with 100 MP3 files, tried playing the files - no issues. Then right-clicked on the Details bar and added "Album" and "Title" columns. The values didn't get displayed, but the green ribbon started running slowly across the address bar and the problem is back. Could it be a problem of sharing ownership of files with Windows XP? But then, I've always ran dual OS and never had this problem before.
Also, right-clicking within the folder didn't reveal any options in the context menu that would not have been there on fresh install, except for the ATi's CCC.
