  • kill avi/mpg preview in explorer but keep advanced properties

    Hi,
    I want to get rid of the movie preview in the explorer task pane.

    Of course the obvious solution is to delete keys like HKCR\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyH andler ...

    ...but this also kills the 'summary' tab in 'properties.'

    regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll is not an option because it kills the summary tab
    and messes up the details view for mp3s.

    Is there any trick to get rid of the thumbnail preview but keep the info in the advanced properties tab?

    Found the answer on http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/winxp .

    Instead of deleting HKCR\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyH andler I deleted HKCR\CLSID\{c5a40261-cd64-4ccf-84cb-c394da41d590} and now things work like they should.
