Unfortuately, with the DOS nomenclature it is not clear which
directory it is pointing to. Program~1 is almost surely Program Files,
but Paints~1 could be Paintshop Pro 5 or Paintshop Pro 6. Do you still
have a PSP 5 directory? If so, this could be pointing to that
directory. The zero at the end tells Windows which icon to use from the
The only other thing I can think of to try (without actually being
able to play with your computer) is to remove all the associations and
let PSP 6 reclaim them. Open Window Explorer, go to View|Folder
Options|File Types, scroll down the list until you find Paint Shop Pro 6
Image and highlight it, then click Remove. This will unassociate all
the file types. Then, start PSP and go to File|Preferences|File Format
Associations. Check all the formats you would like associated with PSP
and then click OK. You may have to close PSP and restart it.
