Windows 7: images open in different windows when image viewer is already in use.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
images open in different windows when image viewer is already in use.

I've put up with it for awhile now just wondering if there's a work around for it.

In XP when you opened pics from say a zip file they'd use the same window but in win 7 they open in a new window.

There doesn't seem to be any way to change this. I never noticed it because I always use the Next and Previous arrows to move through multiple pictures in a folder. I don't think that works if they are in a zip file though.

My Windows programs will not open images, I can open them with PSP
For a while my windows 7 64 bit would open my images in Documents. Now when I try they appear as a garbled strange format. If I go to PSP ProX2 they open fine. This is a problem for me since I often need to add images to document Newsletters I send out. :confused: Thanks, Char
Windows Photo Viewer Squished/Compressed Images
Alright I've never had problems with photo viewer until I switched to Win 7 starting with the beta until the rtm build. But this has to be one of the strangest bugs I've experienced with photo viewer. Apparently, certain images become squished or very compressed either horizontally or...
