You might want to look at something that puts your browser in a sand box, like this:
Sandboxie - Sandbox software for application isolation and secure Web browsing

The free version does the job as far as running default browser sandboxed. You don't need to pay unless you want the additional convenience functions.

If you just want to resize photos, MS Paint that comes with the OS has a "resize" option that's easy to use.

This works well. When I have many pics to send I just resize to 640x480 then zip them up and send as an attatchment. It's free software.

Hey thanks BB I've downloaded that and will try it tomorrow. For the moment the photo album feature in WLM (SkyDrive?) loading snips has worked but I dare say the quality in this app will be better
