LOL, ok.

You can tell them that all you needed to do was set Windows Photo Viewer back as the default program with all of it's associations set to it.

Yeah, I guess that would have been easier, but I did not understand clearly that was what you meant for me to do. Next time (if there is one), I will know better. Incidentally, that is actually what I was trying to get Microsoft to tell me how to do.

Ahhh well...computers!

Hi.

That's why it's best to read every page during an installation, because you allowed it to be the default application for your images. So, having taken Shauns advice by re-associating your pictures to another app, are you still seeing PS icons instead of thumbnails?
I totally agree. To be honest most software providers will trick you into stuff like this. They know that if they put long pages of agreements and changes that will happen to your computer that there people going to use their software is more than likely not going to read it.

Did you create a backup for your computer?

I always create a backup before I download a program just to be on the safe side.

Well, kinda... I have a backup (courtesy of MOZY) of my important files, and I always create (or try to remember to) a Sytem Restore Point. The problem is that it had been so long since I installed PSCS4 that I had installed and uninstalled numerous programs along the way. But, in the end it worked out. Thanks for the comment! -Juan

This is true, Brink! As much as I have learned from working with computers over 32 years, it is a love/hate relationship, mostly love!
