  1. Alright, I un-installed windows defender.
    Though it makes me feel a bit uneasy just. . . . I dunno why, just does.
    But ah well.
    I cant view my pictures.
    The ones that are in my folders are set to view thumbnails but I cant view them. Its not even the thumbnail, its just an icon but not of he picture or icon that its supposed to be.
    I cant open my windows fax/photo viewer either.

    Nah, I know that this time reformating isnt needed because everything else is going fine.
    Sometimes my computer does that with my pictures and after its been shut down for awhile it re-sets itself.
    Just happens.
    I'll see, though. =]
    Thanks for the advice, everyone.
    P.S. Any other suggestions as to what to do or what could be wrong would be appreciated :)

    in any drive or folder at top go to tools, folder ,options, file types
    enter the app that will be used for the file extension
    sometimes this happens when uninstall program that attachs to extension
    I just test a compress app and uninstalled had to reset rar extension back to winrar
    no need to reformat yet
