I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I put the first disc in, and it's fine , then I put the second disc in and it's fine until some of the way through when it tells me I have the wrong disc in and I should have disc one. When I do this it crashes, also if I don't and click continue with disc 2 in, it works for so long then does it again and crashes. I have played with these discs before and it's a legit copy. I don't know what to do.

Recently I have noticed a third party application we are using in our company has not been working properly on certain computers.  I contacted the vendor for support, and they said I should check if My Computer under Control Panel-->Administrative
Tools-->Component Services--> Computers has a red line through it.  On all the computers where the app is not working, this line appears indicating that there is a problem with Component Services.
Doing some further research on the internet, I have found several posts that indicate that if a computer was setup using Easy Transfer, that this leads to a "broken" Component Services.
And indeed---every one of the computers with a broken Component Services was one that had been setup for a new user by using Easy Transfer.  The issue with Component Services does not appear on computers that were a "clean" install.
So--I know my third-party app is not working properly because of a problem in COM+.  There is info to indicate that using Easy Transfer somehow "breaks" Component Services---but no one seems to know how it does this.  There is also no clear advice
or info on how to fix it properly.  Just some general advice to "reinstall Windows".
Can anyone advise if it is possible to re-install or fix COM+ Component Services WITHOUT having to do a complete reinstall of Windows?  I have setup quite a few pcs in my company using the... Read more

Answer:Component Services (COM+) re-installation or repair: using Easy Transfer to setup a new pc breaks COM+????

Windows Easy Transfer helps you transfer your files, email, pictures and settings when moving to a new PC; Component Services are system components that cannot be transferred by means of Windows Easy Transfer.
You could try using the Windows 7 Recovery feature to perform a sort of "in place re-installation" of Windows 7 that could repair COM+: go to Control Panel -> All Control Panel Items -> Recovery and click the "Advanced recovery methods" link and click
the "Reinstall Windows" option and insert the Windows 7 installation disc.

I recently tried to download my husband's game Stronghold Crusader on our new pc. I am very sure the game should play and meet minimum pc requirements as it played on our older, slower version of pc. This is the error that I am getting along with the specs.
Component Transfer Error:
Component: Main App
File Group: App Executables
File: D:\disk1\
Error: incorrect function

I run WinXP Pro on an HP Workstation x2000, have rebooted, installed upgraded version of Windows Installer v 3.1(2), have downloaded Stronghold Crusader Patch v 1.1 and nothing is correcting the problem. Also, the game installs 68% and then quits. It worked fine on the other pc which was a compaq (related to HP) and disk is somewhat scratched but not severely and has been cleaned. Need help as hubbie knows nothing of fixing errors and he wants to play his game. I do all of the pc maintenance in the household.

Hi there. I recently had my pc back from my friend who borrowed it while hers was being repaired. While she had it, for some reason it kept crashing. So when I had it back, I formatted the hard drive and after many unsuccessful attempts (I don't know why), Windows Me is finally back on there. I am now trying to install The Sims Deluxe Edition on there for my kids. The first disc loads fine. When it asks for the second disc, you click ok and then the message "Component Transfer Error" appears. This is a new one on me! Can anyone help?P.S I know that Me is not the best, supposedly, for The Sims, but I haven't had a problem before. Thanks!

Answer:component transfer error

To transfer applications on to another PC you need to have the original installation discs or installation setup files. If that's not the issue, make sure that version of Print Shop you have is compatible with the version of Windows you're trying to install it on.

Hello Everybody,

I've been having the same problem for a very long time. I'm trying to install iTunes for my iPod, but these messages keep on coming up and cancelling the installation:

- The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed (somehow solved today)
- There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. (I managed to solve this)
- An error occurred during installation assembly component. <-- this is my problem. I don't know how long I'm already looking for a solution for this problem, but nothing seems to work. I have already done a full virus- and anti-malware scan.

So I was hoping that you guys would come with the solution for my problem?

Kind Regards,

P.S. I tried to copy iTunes from my brother on a USB-stick to my laptop, but that doesn't help either.

Answer:An error occured during installation of assembly component

here's one possibility- Office 2010 wont install keep Getting Error 2908 then 1935

Note that if you have .net framework 3.5 or 4 shown as installed in Control Panel, you can choose to uninstall them. When you do, you will be given the option to Repair them. If so, run the repair.

Again, this is just a possibility.

Well...I would just say to throw the ETM DVD out the window and be done with it, but I'm guessing that you actually want to play the game...

Is the whole computer rebooting, or is the game just crashing...if the whole computer is rebooting, then there's probably some sort of hardware problem. What make and model power supply do you have?

Well, even though I already had EtM, I took everyone's advice, and bought Max Payne, I liked it so much, I bought Max Payne 2 as well. While both of them had a much better storyline then EtM, other then that I found the two of the quite similar. Other than storyline, I think the only difference I found was EtM had waaaay cooler Hand-to-Hand combat sequences than either of the Max Payne games. The other thing that's bugging me about the debate over which one was better, was that one of the key things that made me decide to get Max Payne was that First Person Mode in EtM was a joke (which it admittedly was), but it seems to me that other than when you're using a gun with a scope, neither do either of the Max Payne games. EtM had Sniper rifles with scopes as well. That said, this argument about why the Max Payne games are better doesn't seem to hold water with me.

Basically, what I'm saying, is that while the Max Payne games are better, it isn't really because of gameplay, IMO, the gameplay was better, though almost identical to Max Payne, because of the added HtH Combat moves it has over Max Payne. The reason Max Payne is better overall IMO, is because of the excellent storyline; and the fear parts of the game inspired in me. One last point I'd like to make, is that I've played Half Life as well, and I don't really understand what everyone was saying about it being 'the scariest game of all time.'

Answer:Enter The Matrix - Update Sound Card

Well, it looks like the Video card has updated, but I think they may mean updates as in performance, not the driver which is what I assume you have done. What are the system requirements on the game's box and what is the spec of your videocard. You need to match it to the game requirements i.e if the box says 32MB graphics card then your card has to be 32MB. The sound card shouldnt be too much of a problem. Just make sure the video card you have meets teh requirements of the game

Answer:Enter The Matrix - Full Screen Mode Not Found

I don't know if your system will be able to handle ETM, because it has integrated video. But hey, I guess it's worth a shot.

First, get the latest drivers for your video here.

Before you play, make sure you close all background applications. Also, you might as well do a spyware check using something like Ad-Aware.
The game installed correctly, right?

Figuring it was a schema version for AD, and AD was missing Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 specific settings, I ran adprep /forestprep, /domainprep (told me there was no work to do), and /domainprep /gpprep (told me there was no work to do).
The "Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair" setting is still not available.  How do make this setting aware to AD?

If this is a program; I would first download, install, and run the free edition of revo uninstaller; which should completely uninstall ALL of the program you are trying to install; including registry entries, etc. and then reboot; which will clear the system resources, etc. then try and install it again. Below is the link to revo uninstaller:

Went abroad in early autumn just after setting up my Mesh Matrix 3400 Power running with AMD64 processor so missed all the excitement and advice about SP2 conflicts.Can't find anything on the Mesh site and the PCA SP2 forum has now closed.Am I likely to encounter any problems in trying to upgrade with SP2?My better half says that she had a go but had some (unspecified) problems so unistalled SP2 again and we are still running on SP1Any comments/advice gratefully received.

Answer:Mesh Matrix & SP2 installation

Before installing SP2 close down all running programs, utilities etc including those in the Notification area.Then create a System Restore point and commence the SP2 installaiton. It will take quite a while.If following installaton, but unlikely if your system is running OK at present, there are insurmountable problems you can uninstall SP2 from Add/Remove Programs and use the Restore Point.Good luck..:-)

First post coming up....

I have created a profile snapshot, using Windows Easy Transfer (WET) on a 32bit XP machine and have placed the resulting file on a network drive.
I then went to my new 64bit W7 pc and downloaded what I believed to be the correct WET version - wet7xp_x64. However, when I ran the executable I received a message "The version of Windows you have installed does not match the update you are trying to install."
I'm running W7 Pro SP1 and have Sophos installed. However Sophos didn't have a problem on the XP machine so don't think it's that.

Any thoughts anyone?

Answer:Windows 7 Easy Transfer installation problem

Hi Andy, welcome to the Seven Forums.

You don't need to install WET on Windows Seven, it's built-in. Just type Easy Transfer on Start Menu > Search field to find it.

im trying to install XP on a Tecra S5.
As described in the manual, I created a disk with Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
With a USB-floppydrive I tried to install XP with the F6 method.
I could choose the correct driver from the disk and was able to create partitions and format them.
Short time later in the installation process, XP asks for the "Intel Matrix Storage Manager"
in drive A:.
Altough disk is still in the drive, there is no reaction.
Even when I change the disk, nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Answer:XP installation on Tecra S5 - Intel Matrix Storage Manager


Start WXP installation again and when necessary load driver from floppy disc using F6 option. This will make HDD ?visible? for WXP set-up. When the HDD is recognized properly install WXP. Later when WXP is installed properly you can change partitions structure.

I don't understand why is floppy suddenly not accessible anymore. Check the data saved on it.

Trying to figure out how to get PCI Memory Controller = Turbo Memory Controller back on my W700ds (2757CTO) running the RAID1.   After mainboard replacement and operating system reinstall the Intel Matrix Manager and the Intel Turbo Memory Controller were listed in the Programs list and under Storage in My Computer-Manage as they would normally be.   I performed a Lenovo Update and the computer installed Intel RST and Matrix Manager disappeared and " Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller"  was installed.  Later some message I can't remember appeared about Turbo Memory and I noticed that Intel Turbo Memory Controller was also gone in the Programs listing.I went to "Manage" and the listing for Turbo memory was still there but the driver would not update.  I removed the Turbo driver thinking I could reinstall it without installing anything else but the Turbo drivers from both Lenovo and Intel want to install both Turbo Memory and Matrix manager which is an older version than the RST that is installed.  The most recent download listed on the either site for Turbo Memory controller is in 2009.Anyone see a problem with my installing the older version of Intel Matrix Manager and Turbo Memory controller on top of the newer Intel RST and then reinstalling the RST?

Answer:Re-installation of Turbo Memory and Matrix Manager on top of Intel RST

I know this isn't what you asked, but I don't suggest spending ANY effort on trying to get it to work.  I ran several tests and could find no evidence that there was a measurable difference with/without it.  It looks to me like Intel has stopped pushing it.  I also never found drivers that really worked in a 64-bit environment.

A while ago I had a screen saver and one of its features was that it could take a video file already on your computer and change it into something that looked like the matrix code. It would then play back the video file in the matrix code look as a screen saver.

Since then, I've gone through either computer changes or reinstalled windows (I really don't remember), and after searching the web for quite a while, I can't find any screen saver (or other software) that will allow me to do this.

Hello everyone!

Some of you may remember HTTP Switchboard/HTTPSB, a great addon for Chromium based Web browsers made by @gorhill. For those of you who don't, it was a very convenient addon which provides many tools to protect online privacy, block ads & some malicious links, speeding up your browsing, and on.
A few months ago, the project has been kind of splitted in two forks:

You must have heard of it already, it is µBlock, a powerful yet lightweight adblocker with many improvements over the adblocking engine from HTTPSB.
It is µMatrix (did you notice it can be read on the thread's title? ), with many improvements over the matrix filtering engine from HTTPSB.
I'm pleased to make you know that after many days of work from @gorhill, µMatrix has been released for the first time as a Stable release! Check out this page for more details about this great addon:µmatrix/ogfcmafjalglgifnmanfmnieipoejdcf

Answer:µMatrix: Point and click matrix to filter net requests

Hello everyone!

I'm happy to announce the release of µMatrix (available since the 22nd of November, sorry I'm late )!

What's the main change? Per scope switches:

"Per-scope switches, introduced in version, allow a user to customize various settings for a specific scope.

The state of a per-scope switch in a broad scope will be inherited by narrower scopes, unless a more specific rule override the broader rule.

For example, setting the per-scope switch "User agent spoofing" in the global (*) scope will cause the user agent information to be spoofed everywhere. However, user agent spoofing could cause a site to not work properly (example:, and it is thus possible to override the global state of the "User agent spoofing" switch by disabling the switch just for the scope where it causes problem.

The per-scope switches layer just like matrix rules layer."
Please take a look here for more information:

And yes, of course those strings should be translated according to the language you use on your system

Also, you'll find minor bugfixes and improvements over the version. Look at the first post for Stores links and other data.

Enjoy this new version!

Hello all,
OK so I do have Event Forwarding working - but I've noticed that when it's first configured I get messages similar to:
The description for Event ID 104 from source Microsoft-Windows-Eventlog cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on
the local computer.
If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.
The following information was included with the event:
The locale specific resource for the desired message is not present
If I alter the subscription (wecutil ss subname /cf:events) the forwarded events are rendered correctly.
However a product we are evaluating (which depends on event forwarding to work) always ends up with a couple of mal-rendered lines - always look something like:
Required Privs: %9
I built a standalone AD domain and joined the same 'problem' clients to this domain and re-configured Event Forwarding - there was no need to change the subscription format type to "events" and the events were forwarded correctly and also
the product we are looking at worked straight away.
It seems that when event forwarding is configured in our live domain (or any of the test labs we have) I always get the attached errors....
I've read a number of blogs that describe the issue and most recommend altering the subscription format - this however ... Read more

Answer:Eventlog Forwarding Issues - Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted.....

Again expecting a massive echo in the room when I say this but's there for future reference:
On your Collector Machine change the regional settings - on the formats tab change this to English (United States) and Event Forwarding with the format of renderedtext will work correctly.
This change is obviously only suitable for environments that are pre-production/test labs
Hoping to hear from MS regarding a workaround - will post back....
Edit: For now this is the answer...

I recently downloaded a matrix screensaver from here I went through all the instructions and installed it. It then opened the folder where 3 files appeared and said I had to add something to my windows directory. What do I do with them to add them to my screensaver?

Answer:Falling matrix screensaver error

This doesn't appear to be all the files needed to run on Windows 7. I'm getting a file is missing error that is not included in the package. The error is reporting the "dx8vb.dll" file is missing. To me it looks as if DirectX 8 needs to be installed.

After reading the readme file, it suggest copying to the Windows folder. But that doesn't make sense, because the screensaver files are kept in a specific location.

I'd say copy the archive contents to "C:\Windows\System32\" and then make sure DirectX 8 is installed.

Than gives the prompt for Configuration Utility but I don't want to be deleting Raid if I don't have to....I dont know what data I would end up losing either.

I tried the gwbasic memory basic and smart errors at all. I did not try the extended yet as it will take hours.

Notes: Upon going into seems I can not even change the boot order. I downloaded an XP recovery disk and it won't boot up. I can get it to go to Intel Boot Agent than it immediately goes back to the windows didnt load properly menu. So far, I can only get the gwbasic memory tests to boot up from a CD.

I tried all the reseeding and unplugging with no luck either. Did a lot of research on here with the closest problem being an Itunes related one but they were allowed to still log into windows whereas I can not nor do we even have Itunes on here.

I wanted to add some keys to my PS/2 keyboard.

It's what I came to ask about. Does anyone recognise this sound? When I make a quick contact with the jumper wire, I get two beeps but if I hold it down for longer, I can get a bunch of beeps. The sound comes from my proper speakers, not the motherboard piezo thing. Please disregard the image in the below video; it's just what happened to be on my screen when recording the sound.

I’m having a problem with a dot matrix printer and windows XP. I use this to print labels for VHS tapes and the printer is functioning just fine. However after it prints a label it scrolls the paper up and wastes 5 or 6 labels. I can’t scroll the paper back down because the labels peel off. Its scrolls it up because normally on a dot matrix you tear the paper at the end of the front cover. This cover has been taken off and on the old computer (an ancient one running windows 95) it would not scroll the paper up after printing and I could just peel the one label off without wasting any. I have used the same printer drivers, Epson FX50 i belive, and I know it is not any setting on the printer itself because I can switch from one computer to the other and only the windows xp computer scrolls the paper after printing. I have made the exact same settings in the printer control panel for both computers so it is not any setting for the driver as I can see. Any ideas? Could it be a Microsoft word feature. The person who set this up on the win95 computer is long gone. So I can’t ask him how he did it. Any help is appreciated. thanks

I am having difficulty reinstalling my dot matrix printer (Panasonic KX-P2023) following the installation of a new, larger H.D. as my primary drive and the reinstallation of my OS (Win 98) on it. I have installed this printer on this computer and several other computers over time without difficulty but I can't seem to reinstall it on this one. I'm installing from a floppy installation disk. After installing the floppy disk contents in C:, I then clicked on Setup and it first asked for the country (USA).
Then it asked for the emulation and offered the choice of either Epson or IBM. I believe I've always used Epson in the past. However, in desperation I tried both Epson and IBM this time. In each case it then asked, in succession, (1) Are you sure (Y/N) and (2) Do you want to save your settings to the printer? (Y/N). In each case I answered "Y". The next window came up with "Printer is not ready" highlighted. But I'm certain that the printer is ready! So what do I do now?

I've had a brand new Mesh 2700 + 9700 for a month or so. When it arrived I got red and black graphics over the elements of the desktop and in games. I think this was where 3D images were being produced. I installed the lastest ATI drivers and it sort of solved the problem. Now every time I boot up for the first time I get the same problem but if i restart they disappear. While this is manageable, it is kind of annoying. Anybody got any ideas why this is happening? All the latest drivers are installed with Control Panel 3.2.

Answer:Problem with Mesh Matrix and ATI 9700 PRO

The clue in this is "brand new" - get Mesh to sort this out. This is your right in law as the 'puter is not performing as it should.

I've been trying to install No One Lives Forever 2 on my computer again, and every time I put in the second disk during install and hit "ok", an error box comes up saying "Component Transfer Error", and then "Group: Resources" and then "Unexpected Failure". Then, the computer tells me that the disk drive may be dirty or need cleaning. So, I tried to use the E drive, (instead of the other one) and the same error comes up, so its not the drive. I've checked the disk and there seems to be no scratches, and the game has worked before. Can someone help?

Hi everyone. I recently downgraded from Vista Home Basic that was already pre-installed when the computer was built last year to Windows XP Pro. I definitely like the performance boost and back to the old-school style layout of XP, however I have one problem. I installed all the drivers, and everything is working--but I cannot install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager apps.

Before I downgraded, I searched other forums that mentioned in order to do the downgrade for the 9200 series, I would have to do either two things: load the SATA drivers by pressing F6 during XP setup, or changing the BIOS settings and turn off the "RAID ON" option. I chose the latter and turned the BIOS setting to the "RAID AUTODETECT / ATA" in the SATA OPERATION fields instead. Others had mentioned that after I choose this option, I could install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager apps & then turn the setting back to "RAID ON" afterwards in XP.

However, the problem is I cannot install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager apps. I've tried the ones from Intel AND the ones from the Dell site. I've tried a total of 4 different apps from these sites. I've tried the newest one from Intel (... Read more

I have a Panasonic Kx-P1092i (old dot matrix
printer) which I use occasionally at work. Most of the time I use a deskjet. I need to re-add it. Somehow something happened recently so that it does not show it listed as a second printer under printers. I have tried to re-add it. It asks for the Windows 98 Cd. When I put in the Cd, I go to drivers, then printers and have not been able to choose one that will work. The printers that Panasonic recommends to use as a driver are also not on the list. Can someone help?

HiI purchased this computer a few months ago and recently found the Asus Probe Utility Programme for monitoring the computer motherboard. In the general summary tab the monitoring of the Power and Chassis Fans has been 'Paused' reporting a below threshold RPM problem. The CPU Fan is reporting OK. The minimum thresholds set by the Bios are 600 rpm for all fans. The CPU fan is running at approx. 3700 rpm. A physical check of the fans seems to show that they are all running. The CPU Temperature is reporting OK as are all other temperatures. The Motherboard is an Asus A7N8X2 Rev 1.xx and the Bios is Ver. 1003 03/19/2003. Has anyone experienced the same problem? The computer is otherwise behaving well.Any advice would be appreciatedThanks

Answer:Mesh Matrix 3000+ NDX - Fan Reporting Problem

The most important physical check of the fans is what i would go by,as the bios has been setup from MESH to suit your system.Probe Utility Programme for monitoring the computer motherboard may be correct but if concerned would suggest contact with Mesh.That way you have safeguarded your warranty if anything goes wrong.

For a few weeks I have strange problem with matrix/screen in my laptop.
The matrix flickers very often - no matter if power cable is plugged or not.
The screen is full bright and suddenly it starts to blink - it is getting darker, than lighter, usually for few/dozen seconds. It does it when nobody touches it or when I work on it.
It very annoying and making eyes tired - it does it very quickly and there are few levels of screen brightness.

Moreover sometimes the screen turns off - You can see what is on desktop but the screen is very very dark (but not blank or completely switched off). It happens without any reason - sometimes just in the middle of working, sometime for example when I touch (not pull) the power cable between laptop and power supply.
Then, the only way to get back to normal brightness of screen id to close the lid just for half a second and open it
- matrix lights then normally, but can "turns off" moment later and I must do it once again - sometimes even few times..
After "action" with lid screens seems like nothing ever happen..

Does anyone have idea what is the cause of such behaviour or how to diagnose it in details?
Or maybe solve this problem?

Best regards

Answer:Problem with matrix/screen in Qosmio F55-Q502

Sounds like the Backlight or Inverter is failing or there is a loose connection.

Is the unit under warranty? Send it to an ASP for repair.

You should avoid repairing it yourself, the backlight is very high voltage!

Hello, I have an HP computer with Windows Vista on it. It has been having some errors lately and I was wondering if anyone knows what to do.

When I first turn it on, before it gets into windows, it has a message that says:
Client Mac Addr: 002354 1F DA 2F GUID: 00B14BE0-E9F7-1310-9F95-93D3A8C488EEDHCP... and then it has some flashing lines.

It sits here for a long time. I can get past it by hitting the escape key. Then it says:
Network Boot canceled by keystroke
Exiting NVDIA Boot

Then once it gets into windows (it loads really slow) a box pops up that says:
Windows installer preparing to install

Destination Component
please wait while windows configures destination component.

then it says:
the feature you are trying to use is on cd-rom or other removeable disk that is not available. Insert defaul destination disk and check ok

And then sometimes it just starts opening internet pages and flashing stuff around on the screen.

I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.


Answer:[SOLVED] Destination Component error

Hello! Your Network boot is active in BIOS. Can you please state the model of your laptop with the model number please.

Where to start?

Desktop running windows xp pro kept looping and wouldn't boot. Tried last known good configuration, safe mode and they wouldn't start either. Tried the windows cd for a repair but that didn't get far and shut down restart occured part way through.

I decided just to go for a complete clean reinstall of windows xp and deleted it from the partition, chose the default partition, and other steps, and it was going well until it said it needed to shut down and restart before continuing. I let it close itself down and restart and then it got as far as saying 39 minutes to complete the installation but at that point shutdown again without restarting.

Each time I try starting up now it gets as far as 'setup is restarting' then closes down again.

I've tried starting over by hitting 'any key' to boot from CD but it still comes up 'setup is restarting'

I can't start in safe mode. I've unplugged everything except the keyboard but it makes no difference whatsoever.

The error message that flashes just before shut down says 'A write operation component was attempted after it was dismounted' -

What does that mean?

Why did the loop start happening in the first place?

I download updates from Mircrosoft automatically and after a look around the internet today it seems that maybe it could be related to XP Service pack 3 but I don't even know if this has been downloaded an installed. I did accept installing s... Read more

Thanks for any suggestions on this one .
When I put a cd into my E drive, ( one that I have used many times before ) ,
and try to open one of the JPEG photos, I get this response :
" Direct Access Component has encountered a problem and needs to close."
It closes and freezes up my system.
I downloaded Reg Cleaner, but it did nothing to solve the problem.
Any ideas out there ?
Thanks much...........Bill Walker

Answer:Direct Access Component Error

It always helps to know the operating system you are using. I assume Windows XP.

It would also be helpful to know what default program is associated with JPG and JPEG on your system. You can get to that information as follows: Start> My Computer> Tools> Folder Options> File Types.

If JPG and JPEG aren't associated with Internet Explorer, try right-clicking on one of those files and selecting "Open With". Browse to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe. Depending on how your machine is configured, the dot-exe part might not show. Let us know how these things work out.

Also, has your antivirus always been up to date? If you've had any recent lapses, it could be a virus.
