i have a folder of pictures that i downloaded from my camera. Anytime i open that folder in windows explorer and click on any of the pictures my machine freezes for minutes. The pictures finally open up in picture viewer but it literally take 10 minutes for it to come up. Also once i go into this directory, the rest of my computer completely freezes. i can't launch the start menu, any other app, etc . . i basically have to do a hard reboot on my machine any time i get into this state.
Also some issues i am seeing:
- If i click "Filmstrip View", it still doesn't show the images, it just shows this:
Does anyone have a suggestion or any thoughts for a possible cause of this issue. Unfortunately, i deleted the pictures from my camera and i don't want to lose the pictures but this is basically unusable so my worst case scenario is simply deleting the directory.
