Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer very slow

Windows Photo Viewer very slow

It's known that the Photo viewer in explorer of Windows 7 is extremely slow with large files.
It takes forever since it time and again crawls trough the files.
The Firestone Viewer for instance is much faster.

However, if you like to upload to Photobucket, you are directed to that silly Windows routine that runs like an old snail.

Is there a way to speed up that proces?
Found somewhere the option to prevent the cache from being cleared.
But it won't work with conflicting permissions. The system may clear things and the user account may not?

(By the way, I haven't created any monitor profiles)

Even of you havent created any monitor profiles... its good to check if the color management Device profile is set to the system default (sRGB IEC61966-2.1)..

do you have printers installed. ??? what color profile are they using....??

if you are trying to view RAW camera images... try to update photo viewer with the RAW support....

Thank you Centaur78 I checked the profiles (sorry it's in Dutch, but you may understand?) See the picture below. Since I use a laser-printer there is no color-profile set, for what I can see. Don't think I'm having RAW pictures? It's all .jpg from the camera. Furthermore only standardized .png of .bmp

Hi bernardus

let troubleshoot it in different way..... You could do this yourself or if you prefer i could look into your system via Teamviewer..

DIY
1. First of download Process Monitor and run it.

2. You would see a stream of process activity going on ...or you will have an option of filtering the results.... We need to choose "Process name" from the first drop down is and in that textbox enter "DllHost.exe"... Click Ok

3. run Picture viewer and try browsing 2 or 3 images where it slows down.... You can watch process monitor windows what is happening.....

4. Now stop the scan (its a small magnifying glass) and then go to file and save using the default option mentioned there.

5. send the .pml file here to review.

That's funny, I can't find any DllHost.exe Adding that filter item in Process Monitor no process is shown anymore? Certainly doing something wrong. But in the unfiltered stream, can't find any DllHost.exe as well? Is it Dllhost or svchost? The last one I can see multiple times (about 12) in taskmanager.

Hey Bernardus

You havent opened any images in photoviewer !!!

You would need to run the process monitor why ur viewing the images in photviewer .... and then try moving between 2 to 3 images....

then stop the scan... and then save the file
