Have XP home edition on a 1G/256Meg Dell laptop. I have
over 2000 of my own photos, but something happened a year
ago where some of the .jpgs get corrupted or the .jpg
viewing component of windows got corrupted, and
certain .jpg fiels can't be viewed. (most created in
Photoshop 6, but not all). ALSO, can't open the folder
with the .jpg in after that! Not only in Windows
Explorer, but also in the open dialogue box in all other
Only solution so far has been to go into DOS and delete
(through guessing) the offending jpg. Currently probably
have about 15 folders I can't open, and I don't want to
particularly delete what is in them.
Note, the files open just fine on other computers. So, I'm
suspecting that the way XP read/previews jpgs is corrupt.
Is there an easy solution, like downloading a single
component to fix the problem?
