I downloaded 10-15 pictures in 2009 ? of a can crushing machine I hope to build. They were listed as Jpg image, or JPEG. Anyway, I open the folder, and have one picture available, and a materials chart. I also have the remaining pictures shown as small icons each looking like a page with the right corner folded. Trying to open each , I get nothing, Checking properties, I get the Kb's used to make the icon.
The original file had maybe 8 MB worth of images. I don't know when these pictures changed form.
In the past couple of months, I have tried out a few new downloaders to see how they performed. These are the downloaders used to record clips from You Tube. Like RealPlayer. I used it for years with minimum problems , but many said it was outdated, no good , etc., and in essence made fun of me for using it. I like the ease of use- Click the "download this video" block on top of the video, and it worked.
Don't know if there is a relationship.
This may take awhile, as I have tinkered with no positive results.
If my post belongs someplace else, please advise.
Windows 7 all updates except one that fails each time -- KB2949787--6.9 Mb
CCleaner, Tweeking, Advaned system care, Malwarebytes, Microsoft security, Combofix- haven't used Combofix for this problem.
Thank you for your support.
