Okey,

Well whenever I am trying to explore my external hard disk and browse the movies folder progress bar gets stuck! Due to which I am unable to play movies from that folder.

It even results in hanging of the computer !!

Though The folder containing photos ,documents is working much better ( It works fine until I open the movies folder and after that it follows the similar pattern)

I hope I have provided the required details.

Excellent. I think we are almost there.

The trouble is that I've not encountered this problem.

The only movies I've got are a few training/tutorial type movies from Microsoft websites.

What I'm going to do is ask some of the others who are avid movie fans to jump in here and let us benefit from their wisdom and experience.

Please do NOT install Ubuntu until this problem is solved.

You won't believe how much that can complicate matters.

Just hang in there, the fire trucks are on the way.

OK. What I would like for you to do is to completely turn off indexing and Windows Search.

I suspect that this is causing your problem.

If this solves the problem, then we will go back and selectively enable/disable indexing and searching.

I'm including a link which will explain how to shutdown both indexing and searching.

Indexing Services turned off. But the problem persists.
