As of three days ago, my JPEG file images have been changed to a generic Windows icon, displaying two pine trees in a small landscape.

This is true of the JPEG files in my Windows 7 Pictures section. When you click on the image, it does display the original JPEG image.

But the JPEG photos in my Picasa collection display normally.

A puzzlement!

Yes, in Windows 7 if you did the workaround, under Advanced Settings it says
Always show icons, never show thumbnails.
So you get an icon and not a thumbnail.

I'll wait until there's some kind of All Clear (?) concerning that threat, before I
change that setting back.

But good to know that workaround was the probable cause!

Thanks!
