Cannot view My Pictures.........Please Help!

By the hitman
Jan 6, 2006
  1. Hello everyone - please can you help me.

    When I enter My Pictures all my thumbnails are there - usually they show the photo itself - but now it's showing a plain thumbnail - when I click on the thumbnails nothing happens.

    If I "Open With" Paint or Paintshop Pro I can view the photos - I just can't view normally.

    I can't use System Restore to restore them as I have it permenantely off due to many virus attacks in the past.

    If anyone has got some advice I'd be eternally grateful. Thanks.

    A quick guess based on the ongoing events on the internet: did you install the unofficial patch for the new windows vulnerability and unregistered a .dll along with it? If so, re-register that .dll file.

    No I haven't used that patch but I did do a disk cleanup and I used registry mechanic before it happened - would that have something to do with it?

    PS Thanks for trying to help me.
