hi experts.

I am running windows vista ultimate edition.I installed windows dreamscene as an ultimate extra.
Dreamscene(video background) worked,until recently.

Seem to be related with video drivers, are you upgraded codecs or something?

actually wasnt codecs but the problem seems to be fixed now.apparently someone messed around with dep (data execution prevention).restored it to default and everything is fine now.explorer isnt crashing and dreamscene is running smoothly
