Hi sanxks and welcome to SF
It's just a hunch, but from what I read I assume the explorer hangs while it tries to generate/display thumbnails for those FLV clips.
What you could try : set the folder view for that folder to detail, list or small icon. (all three don't display thumbnails) to see if that changes anything.
Or go into the K-lite configuration and un-check the thumbnail generation for FLV files.
