    Problem with windows photo viewer


    Hi

    I recently reinstalled win7 because everything began to freeze and work verry slow, a problem I also have with my *new* laptop after a couple of weeks >:-(
    Now, when I want to open a picture with windows photo viewer it doesn't pop up. When I want to see the picture I first have to click on the blinking icon in the taskbar. Very annoying. When I open my documents from the taskbar and want to open it again, to browse in another section of my hard drive, by right clicking -> windows explorern the screen doesn't pop up. Again, I have to click on the blinking icon before I can see the map. It's really irritating me.
    Any solutions? Thnks in advance.

    Greetings

    You say you recently installed Win 7.

    Was that an update from Vista or a clean install?

    It doesn't make sense, unless he/she installed a third-party software and messed up the associations in the first place.

    That's what I was thinking...3rd party software.

    Still, the "error" itself is a bit unusual...
    Perhaps it is a problem with window focusing, which I myself know nothing about, lol
    Guess we'll wait for feedback from bluesoul.

    He/she needs to edit system specs and what he is running as far as AV, Firewall and browser info.

    Windows firewall, Panda antivirus 2010, latest version of firefox.
    The problem occured the very moment win7 was installed. Even before I installed other programs. Everytime I want to open a picture I double click but to make it pop up, have to click another time on the blinking Icon @ the taskbar..

    What's wrong with win7? I'm having nothing but problems on both my desktop and laptop. I maintain my pc's at regular basis but my windows explorer fails several times during the day, also the OS freezes from time to time and this on clean, powerfull computers and only a couple of weeks after win7 install. I'm very angry at microsoft right now >:-(
    E.g. as i'm typing right now i'm not able to open "my documents" via the taskbar.
    It's a simple command, why doesn't it work :-/

    In attachment my system specs.

    Thnks for the reply's!
