    Try switching the classic view and see if that fixes the issue. There are some registry tweaks to try if that fails.

    Try this:

    1. Open windows explorer and goto the folder "Web" in your main windows folder ,"WINNT".
    The full path is "\WINNT\Web\".
    2. In there you will see a file called "folder.htt", open it in a text editor such
    as notepad.
    3. look for the lines:
    [span id=MediaPlayerSpan]
    [/span]
    and replace them with:
    <!--
    [span id=MediaPlayerSpan]
    [/span]
    -->


    Now all Windows media player previews are disabled.
    Also try the following steps:

    Simply do the following steps:
    1) Open a command window (Start->Run, type in 'cmd' hit enter)
    2) To remove image preview, type and hit enter
    regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll
    3) To readd image preview, type and hit enter
    regsvr32 shimgvw.dll
    4) To remove media preview, type and hit enter
    regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll
    5) To readd media preview, type and hit enter
    regsvr32 shmedia.dll
    And lastly you can try the following, but it is designed for XP users.. but may work for win2k users.
