Desktop Frezees When Loading Large Media Files

[Fresh Install]


Hello,

Since My PC is a dell, i can not request direct support from microsoft and
dell is not experinced enough to handle my issue, as many know dell phone
techs aren't really techs..

Anyways, heres my problem..


I'm on a week old freshly reinstalled system by hand and for some reason
since all latest windows updates for XP Home SP2 have been installed, i've
been having severe problems directly open any large media file.. Mainly
videos..

Everytime i attempt to directly access/open a large media file over 300mb's
the desktop frezees, and then a minute later a "Windows Error Report" pops
up that Dr. Watson crashed, and asks to send/dont send in a crash report..
Below is the technical data on that crash report.

The media files are not infected and work perfectly if not accessed
directly.

Does anyone know whats causing this and/or how to solve this..

    Have you tried to open the media file with a different player?

    Re-installing the media player you are using might be another solution.

    It frezees as i said, when ever i attempt to access
    the file by selecting the file and when opening it directly..

    It working perfectly opening it in any player just not
    directly..

    Everytime i access/open it directly Explorer frezees with
    Dr Watson frozen in the background and then several seconds
    later pops up Dr Watson has crashed report/not report it..
    Also as soon as the error reporting window is closed
    explorer crashes desktop disapears and then comes back in a second..
