    Help

    I recently installed a browser called iligo and i set it so that it was my default image viewer.
    I realised that oligo was rubish and so uninstalled but everytime i try to open an image in MY COMPUTER it searches for oligo which doesn't no longer exist on my PC.

    How can i get I.E to be my default image viewer

    Please reply soon.

    Hi,

    The easiest way to achieve this would probably be running this reg file

    It is the general fix to restore Windows Explorer’s thumbnail preview capability for a dozen different image types.

    Subsequently, reboot, and tell us what happens.

    Good luck,

    Try this, for example with a giffile:

    Select any giffile..

    . Highlight the file file by clicking on it once
    · Hold down the shift key and then right-click your mouse
    · Select "Open With" from the menu
    . Choose Iexplore

    Be sure to check the box, "Always use this program to open these files".
    · Click "OK" and you are all done!

    Now reboot to register the changes.

    Tell us what happens.

    Good luck,

    Make sure you are highlighting the file first then holding the SHIFT key while right-clicking.
