Hi all, Got a very weird problem on my HTPC. Occasionally when I play video files, either on a double-click or once they've loaded into MPC, explorer.exe crashes. The vid plays but explorer has to reload itself. This doesn't happen on every file and appears completely random. The shares in question are both linux samba share and normal PC shares. The odd thing is that it only happens on video files or at least it appears that way. HTPC spec in my sig. Any ideas? It's driving me nuts. Have tried disabling the XP firewall to no avail. Cheers!! paul.
