    Hi guys,

    In Windows 2k, the computer freezes when trying to open jpegs. After several minutes, the files will open. I am not sure what causes this. It is very frustrating. I have run adaware, and it turned up nothing. It has 256meg of RAM.

    The pictures are very deep in a directory, if that is of any help.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi,

    Windows doesn't like it if it goes more than 7-8 deep, even then it can grumble. try moving the jpgs to a shallower dir to see if that is causing the problem.

    What is the file jpg associated with? i.e. do you have a picture editing program like micrografix/Adobe photo deluxe or a picture browser like Thumbs plus installed.

    Try changing the association of the file type to see if that will solve the problem.

    Do you have any virus scanning software running?
    Have you accidently told it to scan jpgs for virii?

    hope this helps Lee :D

    I thought about that, over the weekend. Unfortunately, I don't have access to that computer right now, but I will check that out, when I do get to it.

    Thanks a lot!
