    hi, back again! I have now got a new problem!
    I HAD quite a few photos saved in "my documents" but now they are shown as a symbol that looks like a page with the top corner folded over with a large A in the right lower corner, & when I click on this ,I get a window which says "cannot find picture Viewer.exe."
    also if I try to save any e mail attachments whith contain photos, I get the same box!
    have I deleted something important? & can i reinsall somehow?

    Are you on a MAC or a PC? sounds like your QuickTIme viewer is gone or a file association is messed up.

    As a troubleshoot, download Irfanview at www.irfanview.com When it installs, check to make it the default viewer for all image types. The default can be changed back easily. See if the images won’t open in Irfanview when you click on them.

    What is the file extension of the images that are having problems?

    hold shift key down and right click on one of the videos
    click on 'open with'
    select the program (real or win media plyr etc) you want
    check off the 'always open...' box

    this will set the default program for these types of files, then they should open automatically on a click
