    system is windows 98 SE, on Compaq presario. when i try to print off e-mail attachments, message comes up saying cannot find psp.exe- apparently part of paint shop, but didn't think it was ever on this computer-was display model as everything on it now was there when I purchased it as end of line model. Have tried going into My computer, View, Folder options, File types and editing file used to open jpeg and gif files to use another program like I photo to open but now Quick time files are also doing the same thing. Is there some thing else I should be doing, or can I get the psp.exe from some where and down load it? I tried that but it said I needed another file to use the psp.exe so is a vicious circle. Any suggestions??:confused:

    Welcome to TSG...

    If the attachments are images (jpeg or gif), then the default application to open them should be Internet Explorer. To get the correct image type association, select (highlight) the file, then shift+right click on it. You should get an "open with" option. Select IExplore for the above file types, then check "always use...." and click OK.

    Sounds like an association problem. It could be in Windows or if you use netscape click edit preferences and then look under applicatios. There it will list what program it tries to use to open what file type.

    Ah Paint Shop Pro... great program. You can download a trial copy here http://www.jasc.com/download_4.asp?

    Also with a Compaq presario I would contact Compaq, order a quick restore CD. It is used to restore the computer to factory software load. Great to have on hand...Just in case you ever need to.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    If you don't have Paint Shop Pro installed on your machine, you should certainly not install the program just to get your image file associations fixed.

    Follow Rog's advice instead.

    You could also download this reg file

    This 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,
