I used to have this problem with xp a while ago... turned out to be a problem with a shell extension... maybe look into that if nothing else sorts it.
It might also be to do with indexing, I can't remember where the feature is in Vista but make sure it is dissabled, turned off, deleted and anything else you can think of to get rid of it.
have you got the SP1?
I had this once turned out to be a bad codec
any avi icon preview would crash explorer

try changing the view to list
coud be divx player

is there another divx player i could install?
This happened on my dads aswellm incidently also only in folders with avi's we just formatted it though.

yeh mine too,dont realy want to reformat :(
