    I'm running Windows 98, Office 2000. I did receive an answer sometime ago regarding opening the graphics/pictures using Explorer. That works fine except if I try to e-mail a graphic/picture to someone that doesn't have Explorer, the item cannot be opened on their computer. Is there a universal program I can use to open these pictures? Now I switched to Kodak Imaging to open them. I don't know if that works better or not. The original problem was that I couldn't open some of my pictures. I downloaded the files that should have opened them and the jpg still didn't work. Now I can open bmp, gif and tif with no problem. It's the jpg I can't open without using the Kodak Imaging Program or Explorer. All of this happened as a result of installing a game that was supposed to be compatible with Windows and MAC. The CD automatically installed Quick Time and that really messed up my pictures. I have since uninstalled the game including Quick Time, but I was never able to get the jpg to open. Is there a solution? Also is there a way to install the game without the Quick Time so that it uses my system programs instead of Quick Time. When it starts to install it doesn't give you the option to choose. It is a cool game. Thanks... Liz

    Unfortunatly many plug-ins like to grab center stage with file associations as do graphics programs. Many times you are given the option to associate or not associate. You stated in this case it does not. If the game is what you would like to use then you will have to reassociate the jpegs and gifs and tif and so on after the
    game and quick time is loaded. Another thought would be to load quick time separatly from apple http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ and see if it will allow you to specify change in associations. After you have successfully loaded quicktime 5 the load of the game should recognize that quick time is already there and skip that install part. Do you know how to manually change associations?

    To be honest with you, I don't want anything associated with Quick Time on my computer. It's too hard to get rid of. I had to go into the registry to clean up all the mess left behind. So, I guess I'll just forget about that particular game. Thanks for your reply.
