Ah, that explains it then. The slideshow *was* a part of OE4, so those
values were in your registry when you upgraded. I should think that
upgrading from OE4 to OE6 should have removed those automatically, but
apparently it didn't. So yes, you should follow the instructions to
remove those 2 registry values.

That is not too surprising. The OE address book was changed starting
with version 5.01 to add support for Unicode. Earlier versions of OE,
such as OE4, cannot read the address book from OE5.01, 5.5 or 6. When
you upgraded from OE4 to OE6, the address book was upgraded
automatically also. Uninstalling OE6 did not revert the address book,
although it seems to me that it should have. However I've never tested
the upgrade/revert process from OE4 directly to OE6.

Now that you've found these newsgroups, you should always ask your
Windows-related questions here. ISPs are notoriously, er, well, let's
just say, "challenged" when it comes to answering any questions not
directly related to their dialup numbers. ;-)

Yes. Remove those 2 registry values and your OE should preview images
again, although not as a slideshow, just one image below another.
