I currently using Sony VAIO laptop with 32-bit Window 7 Ultimate. But recently it has been bugging me. Whenever I try to open my D: drive (it was separated to two drives, C: and D: by default) in Explorer, an error message pops up. I can't access files and folders in the D: drive. Currently I am accessing my D: drive files from the command prompt. But it is a pain, I like to use it normally like others do. Is there a way to solve this problem?

I tried replacing explorer.exe from another laptop (with 32-bit Windows Vista) but it didn't work. Please check the following screenshot:

DivXMFSource.dll suggests that it is related to DivX codec, most likely generating thumbnails for some files in the root directory of that drive. It could be a corrupt library on your computer or one of media files on the hard drive.

To confirm it is the thumbnails you could try moving the files away in the command prompt (see move /? for detailed instructions) and checking if the folder opens.

Then you should try reinstalling your DivX codec. If the issue persists it is most likely a corrupt media file and you will have to turn thumbnails off to access the folder.
