You would have to change the View settings to remove this panel.
Tools ¦ Folder Options... ¦ General (tab)
On the General tab you would select " Use Windows classic folders" and that should remove the entire pane where .avi previews show up. This also removes any other common task previews that might show up in this panel. panic msg:1569143 11:24 pm on Jul 25, 2005 (gmt 0)
There's no way to prevent it from ONLY previewing .avi & other video files? :( iamlost msg:1569144 4:19 am on Jul 26, 2005 (gmt 0)
