Thread: Certain video files cause computer to crash

  1. #1

    Default Certain video files cause computer to crash

    Whenever I try to play certain WMV files in VLC, my computer screen goes black and in full mode. I can hear audio, but the computer effectively crashes and task manager won't open, forcing me to restart. What is the problem? I don't think it's a virus, as the file works perfectly for everyone else. Thanks in advance.
