Well, since you say that you ran virus checks and it came up with nothing, it could be that there is a bad/corrupt system file.

I recommend you run a scandisk or chkdsk if you're using winxp to try and see if that is the problem.

Does your explorer.exe process cause the CPU to go to 80-100% when doing certain things?

Some of the information I am finding online is a problem with .avi files that are corrupt or incomplete, and how when browsing folders with one of these files causes explorer to lock or freeze up.
