    Well, Windows XP doesnt allow me to open "Picture and Fax Preview" anymore. I tried manually opening images with it and nothing happends. How can I solve this? If not, are there any programs out there that are similare or even less on resources that allow you to open images fast and use arrow keys to check through them. I used this alot for my Digital Camera shots and really need it bad. Why is it gone anyways? wtf

    http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
    browse it and see
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    edit: nvm.. new activation crap.. i aint touchin that.

    any other ideas? Infraview doesnt seem to have a previewer as fast as the Picture and Fax one.. or is there one? How do I find it? ACD see sorta had one, but it used twice as many resources

    Are you sure you hav'nt installed something which has altered the default viewer?
    Right click a pic and see what it's set to open with.

    Otherwise maybe a system restore is your only option

    well, this aint gonna fix windows, but...
    if you have paintshop or photoshop installed, they have browsers
    if not, dont worry about it, you dont need a 150-300 MB install just to see pics


    -edit- quote from another forum:
    Type this into the run command box and it should then start opening in the picture viewer
    regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll
    worth a shot i guess
