Explorer Thumbnails 12 years 1 month ago #18234

Hello Fam1x
If you turn off the thumbnail view (under the View menu select Tiles, Icons, List or Details instead of Thumbnails) does Explorer crash then?

Hi puneetvig,

Thanks for the post, loads of detailed information for Internet Explorer. Just one thing though, i think the original post is for Windows Explorer NOT Internet Explorer !

Penetration Testing work visit or PM me for details.

Re: Explorer Keeps crashing 12 years 1 month ago #18252

Thank for correcting me and I apologize for that.

May be this will work:

When viewing a folder in Windows Explorer that contains Video files you choose to
view in Thumbnail view.
Instead of showing a thumbnail clip of the video the Windows Media Player icon is
displayed instead.

This can occur if the Class entries for the file type have been modified.
To resolve this issue we can manually modify the keys to meet the below values or
we can copy and paste the below text into a text file and save it with a .reg
extension at which time we can double click to merge with the registry.

Note: These are the original settings out of the box and we are simply restoring them

*** Resolution ***

"Content Type"="video/mpeg"






"Content Type"="video/mpeg"






"Content Type"="video/avi"






"Content Type"="video/mpeg"






"Content Type"="video/mpeg"






"Content Type"="video/x-ms-wmv"






"Content Type"="video/x-ms-asf"







Also uncheck the 'do not cache thumbnails' on the folder options

follow these steps to register the Shimgvw.dll file :
1. Log on to the computer as an administrator.
2. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\shimgvw.dll , and then click OK. You receive a message that states that DllRegisterServer in Shimgvw.dll succeeded.
3. Click OK

If there is any error msg do let me know....
See Ya!!!!!! Cheers
