Go to your Pictures Library > Properties and see whether you have the same setting as in the picture.

Have a look what your Videos library is set to. And move the videos to the Videos folder.

The problem is: A buggy codec, possibly combined with a buggy video file that is crashing the buggy codec.

Explorer is trying to decode the first frame of the video to get data for an icon and data about the file like size/length/fps etc. But the codec is crasgin on one or more files in that folder.

Options:

1) Try to track down the buggy codec and remove it.
2) Try to track down the possibly single file causing it and remove it.
3) Avoid it by not using Icon mode. (and keeping the preview screen off in that folder).

This issue in general was introduces in XP SP3, was present in vista and still exists in W7. It comes and goes depening on /exactly/ what codecs you have installed. There may be several for the same file type and the one that is "winning" is bad. Finding out which one is bad can take some spelunking but is possible using some downloaded tools if you are interested.
