In explorer (computer), top left organize, then folder and search options, then view tab.

Check the box for always show icons, never thumbnails.

It will still read the video, but possibly your hangs and crashes could be alleviated like this.

windows 7 built 7100

not solving... i'm actually using details view and i removed from the the colums everything video related....

Then to describe better i had a folder with 142 videos, control + a because i wanted to find out how much is it using of my hdd.

Then ok click in more info at the bottom bar...

20 minutes later i get no information at all + more info to click again + explorer/dllhost using all cpu.

(and when this does not happens there's the huge inconvenience of waitin centuries to find out how much am i selecting =D )

THanks for trying help XD

ps: I wonder why microsoft thinks it can make codecs for everything while companies dedicated to video only can't develop that =.=

Volume 0%, video lags
I have not tested with games, but apparently when I turn the volume to zero internally on media players the video suffers from horrible lag. I'm not using the volume control on Windows. So far, JTV player streaming live videos, The KMPlayer, and even Youtube does it. I'm assuming that this...
