    Choosing the dreamscene in the desktop background window causes a Windows
    host process(Rundll32) has stopped working. The thing to notice is that it
    will pop up a number of these error messages. The exact number being the
    number of mpeg files listed in the box below the location dropdown which
    displays the icons for the mpegs you have.
    If I change the location to videos which has wmv videos it does not cause
    any errors, So my guess here is that it tries to show the preview of the
    mpegs that are causing the the host process to stop working. Is there a fix /
    path that some one at MS could come up with ??

    below is some of the info from the crash

    problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
    Application Name: RunDLL32.exe
    Application Version: 6.0.6000.16386
    Application Timestamp: 4549b0e1

    Yeah, what Cal said - that's not a full crash report - it's missing the
    Module Version and Fault Offset for starters, and the bucket number would be
    really really useful.

    Is on this system?
