My pc is hang when i open avi or vob files

Hi,
While in Windows Explorer, if I happen to look in a folder that just
contains an AVI and vob files from my laptop (don't even open the
AVI file), DrWatson gives me a warning (can't remember the details) and then
Windows Explorer hangs and have to do a CTRL-ALT-DEL to terminate W.E. and
error report goes out to Microsoft. (no response of course) Happens every
time.This does not happen on my omputer so there has to be a
problem (conflict?) on this desktop.

Any suggestions as to what is causing this problem?

Thanks,
kadam

  1. you cantry to repair the installation with the installation disk, if you know when this started you can restore the computer to a time before this happened
  2. You can use a video converter to change the file's format.
    I think wmv id more friendly.
