Iane Posted March 25, 2008 Share Posted March 25, 2008 In case you get error reports on similar I've detailed here what's going on. I was using Paint.net and went into open file - file view comes up and I have it set to thumbnails view - I clicked to the root of my drive and 1 second later paint shuts down with MS warning it encountered a problem but not telling me why. I have 2 drives OS and storage and the error was on the storage drive - for the life of me I couldn't figure out why it was shuting down so then it came to me :idea: I ran another program went to open file (again with it set on Thumbnails view) and bang it shuts down but this time got the error. xvid.dll was the problem - I assume it was being accessed to create a thumbnail of some vids I have on storage drive but spat the dummy - tested with several other programs and same thing. So if you get an error on opening a file with thumbnails view on then you know it's not paint related. Ian Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
