COM Surrogate has stopped working: Vista

Do you have an error "COM Surrogate has stopped working" any time you select an avi / mpeg file in Vista?

This error is caused when Vista is trying to build a thumbnail, and you don't have the right codecs for that file.

To fix this you can either download the latest ffdshow code pack
or disable thumbnails in explorer.
