    *.jpg viewing

    When I used to click on a jpeg image it would come up in PhotoEd. Now, all of a sudden when I click on the jpeg image it says "Windows cannot find PSP.EXE". If I go into folder options through Windows Explorer, file types, it still shows jpeg/jpg files being opened with PhotoEd. The path is also correct. What's gummed up?

    Sometimes Windows just loses the plot (bet you've never heard that before! <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>). The easy fix is to delete the setting under File Types and re-establish it.

    HUmmm, that sounds like something that movies don't have anymore, a plot.

    I did what you suggested, which sounded reasonable to me. I deleted the old file type and reestablished a new one. When I tried to click o.k. I got the following message. "The extension '.jpg' is already in use by file type 'konvertor'. Choose another extension." I don't even know what this konvertor is! I've done a file search and came up with nothing. <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    Sounds quite plausible to me:

    "Konvertor washes out problems with images, videos and music files. Konvertor is a file manager, editor and viewer to convert, thumbnail, optimize, batch process and produce special effects on virtually all popular bitmapped graphic and music formats ."

    Now, if you did not install it, who did? Do a Search/Find on your Computer and see if Konverter exists. Also, I would think about using StartupList from Spyware.info. NO, I am not implying that you have Spyware on your system, but this program will help identify: A) if Konverter is running, and [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] from where it is started.

    I did a search/find on my computer for "konvertor" . It did not find "konvertor". I downloaded "startuplist" and ran that program and then did a search for "konvertor". It found nothing. Yet, when I try to change the file type jpg it still gives me the message that that extension is being used by "konvertor". What am I doing wrong? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    According to Docs site it is a DLL file . You should be able to find it under C:WindowsSystemkonvertor.dll, probably a hidden file.

    I did a c:windowssystemkonvertor.dll search but came up with nothing. Under my folder options I have checked to show all files. I did do a search of my registry and found all kinds of references to "konvertor", but I opted to do nothing since I know very little about the registry. I do have "Systems Mechanic" and that showed alot of references to "konvertor" but I didn't delete them. I don't know if I deleted those references something else wouldn't work or not. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    If it is a DLL and it is "running", then my guess is that "RunDLL.exe" has executed the konverter.dll. StartupList may indicate that RunDLL is running the file in question.

    If you like, attach the StartupList printout as a text file here and we can scan through it.

    You need to ALSO click on "Show System Files" to see some of these hidden files.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Yes Dave is correct. You have to enable Show System Files.

    Attached is the startuplist txt file. I went into windows explorer and checked views. Under "hidden files" it just shows "show all files". Nothing says "show hidden files". I must be missing it somewhere. I think I gotta be led.

    Your right about the options. In Win 98SE, the dialog box looks like the attachment. If you have Konvertor entries left over in the registry that's probably where the problem lies. You could export them to a text file & attach it to a post. Someone should be able to look at it.

    O.K. people, attached is a text file containing all the references to "konvertor" in my registry. I surely hope some of you can make sense out of it. I surely can't. When I run the program "System Mechanic" it shows most of these entries (I haven't compared them item by item) but to date, I haven't deleted any of them. I've never installed the program "konvertor" on my computer. I do have Paint Shop Pro. So..............what's going on???
