:confused: I know - this is an old problem but still, I can't overcome

A year ago I have stared receiving the above application error when I
navigate to folders containing AVI files.

Dismissing the dialog is followed by an apparent Windows Explorer crash
and restart.
The solutions I found in several sites are as follows:

The WinXP file version 6.02.4131.0 *has* the ordinal 6880. Therefore,
you've installed poor software installing an older version of that
file. If you're lucky, that copy was installed in a program folder and
can be deleted. When done, re-register the WinXP system file:
Start Run: regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\System32\MFC42.DLL
Well, seems i'm not lucky after all..
i found a few MFC42.DLL files with above version.
I renamed 4-5 files that seemed potentially harmful (under
DISTRIBUTION, WINDOWS\$NINSTALL) left the one under System32 and then
re-registered as above ---NADA!! same problem.

Is there any creative idea?
was it enough to rename or should i delete/remove from their

BTW, for the time being, i'm using another file manager instead of the
original Explorer (i use xplorer2) and it doesn't seem to care about
this bloody MFC42 problem...
