Does this happen with only a particular avi file? Does it also happen if you try to open this file with another media player? Does it also happen if you first open the media player non-maximized and then try to open the file via the Menu in the default media player? What happens if you do the same with the default media player maximized.
You might have succeeded in deleting the avi file but the fault may be elsewhere. Of course the first thing to suggest would be to uninstall the media player, manually clean the registry of all references to the offending media player and then after rebooting install it again and retry
Yes, only that particular avi file. I'm using VLC media player and I can play other avi files with no problem. All media players that tried to open that file will cause my computer to hang, so I don't think the problem lies within the media player, but with the avi file.
