I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: Picture Files

There are various places that something might have changed to bring that about. The simplest to check is as follows:

Go to your pictures folder.
Press Alt
Go to tools
Click Folder Options
Click View.
Make sure that "always show icons, never thumbnails" is unchecked.
Click OK

Unwanted encoding messages on opening MSWord files. Inability to open MSExcel files and picture files.

I recently purchased a new Dell Dimension 4700. It came with a trial version of Paint Shop Pro. Everytime I tried to view a picture, the little Paint Shop Pro trial box would pop up and I would have to open PSP to view a picture (jpg, .gif, bmp...) Now the trial expired, I removed the PSP trial from my computer and now my computer doesn't know how to open a jpg.

I assume there is a setting somewhere, some type of default to set, but I have no idea where it is. Can anyone help? OH, I have XP

I suppose I could call Dell support, but I don't have two hours to wait on hold to speak to some one in India......

Hi, I hope somebody can help me with this. Here goes:
Recently I cannot play any of my NeroShowTime.Files or .avi files on any media player without the message:
"Windows cannot open this file
To open this file Windows needs to know what program created it."
It then gives me the choice to "use the web service to find the appropriate program" or "select the program from a list".
I've selected many programs but they only play the sounds of the file and not the picture. When I "use a web service to find the appropriate program" it gives me the program IrfanView and when I try to play my file on it I get no sound or picture with the message "video not available, cannot find vids:xvid decompresor". The thing that really puzzles me is that some I have I could play before now but I can't now!!
Does anybody know whats wrong and how I can fix it?
Thanks

I hope someone can help me here. Recently, I have not been able to save pics I download from the net onto my hardrive. I am running XP pro and use AOL 8.0.

I right-click on the pic I want to save, click Save as, then ok. When I go to My Pictures to view the pic, there is only the JPEG Icon (orange salboat), and when i click on it, the Windows Picture Viewer says there is no preview available. I try to view it in paint as well, but the same thing happens.

Also, when I save it, the save box only gives me the choices of .ART or Bitmap. If I save it .ART, Windows gives me a message saying that it needs to know what program created it.

Does anyone know what the problem might be? Can anyone help?

I am archiving my photo files to CDRs. I am wondering what is the best file format to save them as. Is JPEG better than TIFF and if so why.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

TL
 

A:Picture files

What are the pictures for? If you plan to print them at photo quality TIFFis your best choice. If they are to be viewed on screen used on a website or e-mailed JPG will allow you to get many on a single CD. Every time you save them to JPG you lose quality.

Most of my images are 30Mb TIFF. I tried LZW compression which is lossless, but it took them too long to compress and decompress if I wanted to look at a batch of them. I just limit myself to 22 per CD and use the full TIFF. CDs are cheap and my images are important to me especially the ones I have spent hour working in Photoshop. It takes a while to scan a roll of film in my film scanner and it is certainly worth 25c to not have to do it again.

When i open a folder containg pictures (JPPGs, TIFFs etc) it takes age sto display the contents. This i am pressuming is because it is showing previews/thumbnails of each file which would be great if they were small but most of my pictures are a minimum of 2 or 3 MB so this takes a while when there are hundreds of them. So i though switching off the display thumbnails would help but it still takes ages to display the standard icons! anybody know why? and can i get it to just list the files in the folder without doing other stuff? even if i go to recent documents when i have openend say 20 pics recently it still takes about 30 secs to populate the list! Any suggestions, i know Windows 98 never did this!

I just upgraded from ME to XP and formatted my harddrive as part of the install. In prep for this, I copied all of my docs and pics onto a CD-R and then moved them into the appropriate folders after the install. My docs work fine, but all of my picture files are corrupt - sort of. They display as thumbnails just fine, but when opened, only the top 25-50% of the pic is normal and the bottom half is garbled.
Also, when I try to open the MY Pictures folder, I get the following error:

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I have an external hard drive which I have many picture files saved on. Today, while going through the pictures trying to organize them, I came upon a folder in which I was unable to open many of the pictures. I can see the picture in the thumbnail/icon view; however, when I try to actually open the picture, it just brings up a gray box with only a very little bit of the top edge of the picture (if it's portrait format) or side edge of the picture (if it's landscape format). I tried saving one of the pictures to my computer's hard drive to see if it would then open, but I got the same result. Like I said, some of the pictures in this particular folder I can open, but the rest react this way, when I try. Any ideas of what the problem could be?

I have a Digital camera and have sent some pictures to other internet users using Outlook Express and attaching the photos to the Emails. When the receiver gets the emails and opens the attachments it goes into what sounds like a screenshow. Unfortunately not only does it contain the photos that I intended for the recipient to get but also other photos that reside on my pc. How can I stop this from happening??????

Oh my goodness!!!!

A:Unwanted Picture Files

It sounds like you are attaching the whole folder, not just the photo you want.
My suggestion would be to create a "for email " folder in your my pictures folder and copy just the photo you are planning on emailing there.

It is also possible you have some share to web style software included with this camera?
Are you copying the pictures from the camera to a folder (I normally create a new dated folder each time I transfer pictures such as if I took photos at the arboretum today I would put them in a folder arboretum042406 so that I knew when they were created, and that folder would be in a sub folder RawDigicamPics inside the MyPictures folder in MyDocuments. )
Then when I want to email some , I copy them to the ForEmail folder in MyPictures folder.

Just right click in My Pictures and choose new / folder and name it.

The opening as a slideshow is one way XP will display pictures when you have a lot of them.

I've just noticed that some of my picture files (jpgs) in Windows Explorer dont show a thumbnail anymore, just the Microsoft thumbnail image. In Filmstrip mode, it says 'No preview available.', When I double click on the thumbnail, Office Picture Manager opens, but there is just a small red cross where the image should be. They wont open in any other software either (Paint, Picture & Fax Viewer or Picassa). All the pictures that have been affected this way say they were modified on the same date and time in October 2008. Also a Thumbs database file has appeared in some of the affected folders. What has happened, and can it be reversed?

A:Picture Files Won't Open

Sounds like these pictures all got corrupted by the event that happened in October 2008. Perhaps a sudden power supply interruption or something like that (or more ominously, perhaps a virus infection or something like that) seems to have either damaged part of the disk where these images were leading to the pictures getting damaged or the data in the pictures was corrupted.

I thought I would be smart. Since I never use or even look at most of the pictures in my picture file, I thought to delete those. Now it looks as though I've deleted the one that is displayed on my desktop as background. I wanted to save that one. I tried a Restore button but nothing restored. How do I get all those back? Or at least that particular one. Maybe there is a way to just save it?

Please advise. Thanks.

A:Deleting/Restoring picture files

P. S. Nevermind. I found it! Windows 7 makes it easy by putting everything in the Recycle Bin. From there, I found the picture and restored it.

That does make me wonder, though. My purpose in deleting a lot of those pictures was to, hopefully, cut down on ESET's scan time. I suppose ESET also scans the Recycle Bin? If so, I haven't achieved anything. Have I?

A:having problems viewing picture files

Hello baylee1961,

Not much showing here that would cause those problems. We'll start here;

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad since you will not have any of browsers open while you are fixing this.

Download Spybot 1.4 from this site Spybot 1.4. Install the program, update the definitions file, click on 'Immunize' and run a scan. Fix all the entries, which are indicated in RED.

Please download Adaware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Go to this Site to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. Also make sure to Customize the settings in Adaware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link doesn't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:

RELEVANCY SCORE 41.2

Everytime I download an .mp3 file or any file, this pops up, "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

Also, When i download and open a picture file, this pops up, "Photo Gallery can't display this picture because it is an empty file." ...I just downloaded it from the net and it's already empty on every file??

I NEED URGENT HELP!!!

Thank you!

A:Can't open any music/picture files!! Help!

Shut down computer. Remove power cord, and battery if it is a mobile computer. Press and hold power button for 90 seconds. Replug all power sources. Boot up tapping the F8 key repeatedly and select "Last Known Good Configuration"

-When did this issue start happening? Did this happen after you installed a certain program, or anything along the lines of making changes to your computer? If not, try resetting your router and/or modem, by unplugging the power for 10 sec and replug.. Could be releated to packet loss as you said these is only on files you download?-

Try reinstalling Network Adaptor drivers as well if the above solutions don't work.
