Welcome to Seven Forums AlphaRaven. That can be caused by a bad codec, even viewing thumbnails of files using a bad codec. I notice you have your video folder open. If the problem repeats quite often, see if it only happens when viewing that folder, or playing vids. If so, try disabling thumbnail view in the folder and see if that changes. If it is a bad codec, do you have a codec pack installed? A Guy

Sure, more info? You have a video that won't let you delete it? It gives you an error when you try? What error exactly? Try Unlocker and see if that works, if not post a screenshot of the error.

Download Unlocker 1.9.2 - FileHippo.com
