    I have A file folder that I've scanned hundreds of pre-1900 family photos into. Somehow four of the pictures have been corrupted. When I set the view to thumbnail in Widow XP I get the thumbnail picture view on all pictures exept these four. On the four I only get the JPEG or TIFF icon. They still maintain their file size, but they cannot be opened or previewed. I can't delete them either by right clicking or dragging to the trash. I wanted to burn the Picture file to disc and the only way I could do it was to "select all" and then unselect the four. I've moved the good pictures to a new folder, but now I am left with a folder with four undeletable pictures in an undeletable file folder. I can't delete the pictures or the folder. Does anyone have any ideas ?

    Have you tried opening the pictures with a program like irfanview?

    If you just want to delete those 4 pictures try rebooting the computer first or try deleting from safe mode. If that doesn't work then I have heard that
    Move On Boot will get rid of stuborn files.

    Another vote for PC Inspector. It was able to recover some photos from a camera card after my professional photograper son-in-law couldn't. Awesome program, and the price is right.
