Windows 7: Win 7 hides jpeg files when tagged

Win 7 hides jpeg files when tagged

This problem also started today on my system with 64 bit windows. The problem occurs when adding tags or other editing jpg file types in all the graphic programs i have on my machine. The problem only started today and has not been a problem in the last 3 years i have been using windows 7 including betas.

The files attributes are being changed by the operating system during system saves to being a hidden file type when it appears native windows 7 system calls are made, it isn't happening during inital file saves from my camera or scanner. Yes the files are viewable in win exploerer when the show hidden files is check in file and search options and files can be changed back to being standard files by manually changing the attributes but this shouldn't be happening at all. JPG files are not a reserved system file type that are typically hidden my windows to prevent them from being deleted by ignorant system users. Can anyone tell me what is going on?

Thanks all

Hi,

Definately some sort of 'bug' has appeared. I was able to replicate your problem by:

1. Opening a pre-existing JPG file from My Pictures library using Paint.
2. Making a small edit and saving the file.
3. JPG file 'dissapears'.

This is definately one for Microsoft - any idea how we can let them know of the problem?

Regards,
Golden

This is a new bug and hopefully MS will be of some help. For now just keep options set to Show Hidden Files.

Hello Klunky, do you have McAfee security installed?

yes, mcafee is install but there have been no new updates that i am aware that were installed prior to this happening. Tried a system restore to a earlier date when there was no problem and the problem is still there. It is happening with all the graphic program (photoshop, picisa 3, windows live photo viewer, nikon nx2, paint and others) including windows native jpg edit funcitions in file explorer. So it has to be a system dll call that is common to all.

I Klunky, seems McAfee is the culprit here. Read this post.

hidden jpg files

Yeah, me too! Driving me crazy. Finally got a good suggestion from a Corel tech (re:Corel PhotoPaint): instead of SAVING AS as JPG, try EXPORTING AS JPG FOR WEB. Works for me.

Welcome to Seven forums NIKKINOUSE. How, exactly do you do that? It's not an option in my Save As dialog nor the right-click menu of a web based pic.

In Corel PhotoPaint -- select FILE then EXPORT FOR WEB. Choose desired file format (qulity/jpg) and save. Should work -- file not hidden.
