    Firstly you may try klcp's suggestion - this *should* work, after applying there is no bitrate/framespersec/etc info in Details pane. Maybe you will need to take ownership of these registry keys and to assign FullControl access for Administrators. Then delete both .mov values and restart.

    Unfortunely full testing is impossible without problematic files.

    There are two shell extensions that deal with multimedia content. Thumbnails and the PropertyHandler. You already tried replacing and disabling the first.

    You can disable PropertyHandling through these keys:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PropertySystem\SystemPropertyHandlers
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PropertySystem\PropertyHandlers

    Don't forget to reboot.

    YOU ARE AWESOME
    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!


    This was the fix... both these registry entries must be removed, one is a .MOV entry, the other is a MOV folder (which is why I missed it when I nuked everything in my registry relating to .MOV). These registry entries are different in Windows 10 "N" and Windows 7, which is why they don't have the same problems.



    Below are misc quotes from Microsoft pages which describe PropertyHandlers:

    "the performance and reliability characteristics of your property handler in busy, highly concurrent environments is of critical importance"

    "the file format should be arranged so that reading or writing property values does not require reading the whole file from disk. Even if the file needs to be sought, it should not be read into memory in its entirety because that bloats the working set of Windows Explorer or the Windows Search indexer as they try to access or index these files"

    I am new here. I had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM. In fact, it caused me so many problems that I ended up having to hard reboot after freezes which corrupted those files on my hard drive. Then every time I even tried to load the folders (I really needed those videos, I had just shot them), my computer froze up again.

    It got so bad that I could barely load anything.

    Now - I had the PRO version of Win7 precisely so I could use legacy apps. MSFT uploaded the HOME version of Windows 10 (without my permission, it was pushed to me). But it seemed OK until I got the 1096 anniversary update - DISASTER!!!!!!

    I spent hours on the phone - three different techs (because none could solve my problem). I lost everything because of what they did, my favorites, bookmarks, all working apps, MS Office, all my stored passwords, all my archived email for 10 years.

    Fortunately, all of my app install files, documents, pics and videos were on a separate hard drive.

    They advised me to take that out of the computer and completely reinstall Win 10 PROFESSIONAL, which I had to download and burn a DVD. I am in the process of doing that right now. I am also using a different computer to try to save my other hard disk (the one with all my data) so I ca put it back into my main one once Win10 pro is installed.

    What a nightmare. I wish I could just take it to a tech and send Microsoft the bill. I am also going to be very upset if many of y old apps do not work any longer (office 2007, Corel Video, and many more.

    I am sorry - but can you please be more specific about what to do with the reg entries? I don't know whether to delete them, or change some value. I would like to see those .MOV files assuming I can get them defragged.

    Also - how does one disable thumbnails in folders?

    All help greatly appreciated. I should mention again that I am now installing Win 10 PRO (I had Home when my mishaps occurred before) - so maybe I should assume I do not have to worry about these issues anymore?

    You need to delete the .mov values and subkeys in those two keys. Should be straight-forward when you see the contents of the keys.

    To disable thumbnails delete these keys:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mov\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11D1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mov\ShellEx\{e357fccd-a995-4576-b01f-234630154e96}

    Microsoft has supposedly fixed this bug in one of the latest (insider) builds.
