I Had my old Laptop drive cleared totally and XP Home reinstalled clean. Then I reinstalled a few of my old compatible programs that I use particularly for photo editiing (PSP 9), my email account and my Family Tree Maker 2005 which has a large data base built up. I am using Foxfire Mozilla.
These were all previously in this harddrive...but along with 10 years of all kinds of othe junk.
Well, it starts up and runs like gang busters with so much gunk removed,...however I seem to have a problem with opening files like image files. When I click on a an image file on the desk top..it trys to open in "Music"....for instance which of course it can't. I would say that the "shotcuts" and file associations are somehow messed up. I have run scandisc and check disk repair....to no avail.
If anyone could tell me how to approach this problem I would be very grateful.
