Windows 7: Can't change any file properties, error 0x80004005

Can't change any file properties, error 0x80004005

Hi there,

I was trying to change a mp3 file properties > details, but it won't let me. There is nothing listed.

When looking in explorer, it shows no album information or title.

It does it with video files as well, so I am assuming all properties.

When I do change something from the bottom, it gives me error 0x80004005: Unspecified error.

'An unexpected error is keeping you from applying properties to the file'

I used to be able to, so not sure what happened!

MediaMonkey can see the details, but every file on the computer, I can't see the details in explorer?

Do I have to register some .dll? Regserv32 of some sort?

One of the other forum sections would be more appropriate for this problem, since this section is for actual audio problems.

Maybe the Crashes and Debugging would be a good place to start since you are getting the error code. http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-debugging/

Alright then, I posted another thread there. Can a mod close this?

Thanks.
