    I noticed that all of my ICONs for IMAGES in my folders have changed to one that looks like a WINDOWS FLAG.... instead of the usual icons.

    Also... I used to view my folder as a web page... and as soon as I hovered over the ICON the image would preview... almost instantly.

    Now... although it is still set-up to view as a web page..... when I hover the preview takes longer to appear...... and even says Generating Preview..... and it takes awhile.

    Why have my icons changed like this? What does that windows flag icon mean and why is everything so slow? Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Are the images associated with the default Windows programs for opening them? IExplore for gifs and jpegs, MSPaint for bmps?

    Try selecting one, (highlight) and then shift+right click. Select "open with" then scroll to and select the default program for opening. Check "always use" and OK. Does that correct the problem?

    Thanks for the info........
    Thanks for your reply. Evidently... in the process of trying new Image editors, viewers etc.... installing, uninstalling and what not... my file associations became out of whack so I went back to my old image program... ULEAD PHOTO-IMPACT and set it as the default image viewer... rebooted... and all is fine. Thanks again.
