I keep getting this bex error for explorer.exe, but that is only when I open a certain folder. It contains no special file formats, just mp4 videos, like all other season folder of that series. So far all other folders, including those that contain same file formats have opened without encountering problems. What could I do:

I recommend i virus scan! BEX = Buffer Overflow Exception or Data Execution Prevention (DEP) exception. DEP is a security feature that seeks to prevent exploits that inject program code into Windows memory.

Thanks a lot for your reply.

Sorry, I forgot to mention I already did that. A deep system scan and a contextual scan for that specific folder was performed before and after booting. I also used couple of online scans for that drive. Nothing came up. Should I try changing my DEP settings? Right now it is checked for essential files and folders only.

One more thing, this folder was perfectly working before. Also folders that have larger data than this also open without problem. Even my 10GB games run smoothly as ever.
