[QUOTE=MichaelNicholson;2505558]when i get ready to open a avi movie file my windows explorer crashes how can i stop this from happening?[/QUOTE]
This is a result of bad avi file or corrupt avi file. You will need to get VLC and see if it can open it but my guess is the file is bad avi and you will need a new avi file that isn’t corrupted. So delete that avi file and get a better working avi file.
