Cannot Open Jpeg Files, Problem With Email Attachment


I have just started to use windows 7 and have encounter problems that is going to impact on my job as a teacher.

1 - i cannot open jpegs in win 7 - i can see them on the view but the error box tells me it can not open them - test question diagrams are usually sent as jpegs.

2 - i have some video clips as attachments in emails - i transferred them across to win 7 but i now can't take them off as win 7 doesn't recognize the file type so i can't even take the files off and reinstall xp while win 7 is being ironed out.

3 - gifs/animations no longer work in powerpoint in fact gifs or animation files are not working at all in win 7 - as i teach using powerpoint and the diagrams that are animated are used to explain concepts in physics and other sciences - this is a pain.

If anyone can solve this quickly with a patch or add on/or fill me in on what i 'm not doing right i will be relieved. If some one can fix no. 2 at least i can go back to xp.

Email Attachment Size Problem

Using windows 7 & internet explorer 8  with bell canada  services. There is a limitation of attachment size of 20mb. A one page scanned document in tiff format is 22mb. Therefore, i can't attach the file. I do not want to upload my files to someone else's server because even if it is password protected, i can't assure the security nd privacy of a computer which i don't personally have control over. Is there a solution? Or do i need to go back to using rogers yahoo service? Today's computer capabilities need to be matched by the services provided. Any solutions?

Vista Email Attachment Does Not Work

I just upgraded my computer and it came with windows 7 premium. I struggled to find an email client that i was happy with for windows 7, but finally settled on vista net mail v 10. Everything is set up and going fine and that was until i tried to attach a pic from my folder to attach to an email, the message comes up " either install an email program or a association in the default program of the control panel of you existing client email".

I tried to attach it to the email in various ways using the attachment button within the program, this r does place the attachment onto the email but sends the email to the outbox annotated with a q and that is where it sits ie, it does not send. Obviously i am missing something or i need to do something to fix the problem! Any suggestions?

Problem Saving Jpeg Files From Internet

I have been trying to save jpeg file (census image from ancestry.com) and it tells me it is saved on my desktop as i want. When i go to the desktop it isn't there, search facility doesn't find it. I go back to the image and try to save again and it tells me it is already on the desktop. I tried setting up a folder to save to but had the same problem, image says it is saved but it doesn't show and can't be found by search.

I can save images as an adobe and have no problems but i don't get the option to choose how it is saved, it is just as jpeg.

.jpeg Files Display With Colored Lines

Jpeg photo files imported onto the computer sometimes appear corrupted with colored lines running through them or chopped into pieces jpeg and also raw files are sometimes ruined when they are imported, the same files imported onto any other computer are ok. Probably 20-40% of files are corrupted on importing no matter how i do it, whether copy & paste or using import software or whatever. I tried upgrading to windows 7 and that didn't work. I ran the sfc/scannow fix and it found no problems. Has anyone else heard of this problem?

Ie8 Will Not Open Email

I am running windows xp, sp3 and ie 8 on 3 computers with avg antivirus. I have had zero problems until the other day. On one computer i.e 8 is not opening my yahoo or google e-mails. I can get to my inbox but when i click on the e-mail the computer responds "loading" and then times out. I have firefox and chrome browsers installed on this computer and can access my yahoo & google e-mails normally. I can also access my e-mails via ie8 normally on the other two computers.

I tried uninstalling ie8 and did manage to do this after uninstalling sp3. I then tried installing ie 7 but could still not access my e-mails. When i uninstalled ie 7 i was able to access my e-mails using ie6 (but it is very slow!). I reinstalled ie 8 and sp3 on the computer and still no success. I prefer ie8 to firefox and chrome and would welcome any suggestions to troubleshoot this problem.

I get this message everytime i try to open e-mail attachments: "this tab has been recovered. A problem with this web page caused internet explorer to close and reopen the tab" this appears for a few seconds and then the screen reverts back to my e-mail inbox. What i have tried: clear cache and delete cookies, enable every visit to page option, verify that active scripting and java applets etc. Are not blocked.

Tried using default settings. Nothing has helped!

I am running vista, ie-8 and using msn hotmail.

Attaching Multiple Files In Email

I have a hotmail account using windows live mail, 64-bit windows 7 os. When i want to attach multiple files to an email, i'm able to do only one at a time. Clicking "attach" brings up window titled "choose which file to upload", i then have to search for the file i want, and select each one to attach one at a time: i don't get the "file" or "photo" options like i do in a 32-bit windows xp environment. Current computer came with ie8 already installed, so i never had to download it.

Printing To Email From Word Perfect Or Pdf Files

After the recent automatic upgrades to my computer, it's changed a lot of things about the start up. I don't like them but can live with them if i have to, although i don't see why i should. I had no problems like this with my xp system. It was much more stable and i didn't have to do cartwheels every time i started it up. I absolutely hate windows 7.

Also, after the upgrades went into effect, i could not open and print word perfect documents or pdf files from e-mail when i could before. I have word perfect and adober acrobat on my computer. What did you change and how do i fix your problem?

.exe Files Will Not Open Normally

.exe files will not open normally, they just give a message saying "choose the program you want to use to open this file" i've seen this problem elsewhere but with a few different recommendations. My windows 7 recently started malfunctioning recently after apparently contracting several viruses - i think i've gotten rid of most of the problems by downloading the free version of avg, which was recommended to me by a friend. However, two problems remain:

1. Internet explorer keeps opening erratically and immediately accessing strange websites (i'm sure this is some sort of malware still on my computer). My internet explorer folder won't delete, either (it says i need "permission from trustedinstaller to make changes to this folder").

2. I can't open .exe files normally. Every time i try to (either by double clicking an icon or from the start menu) i get an "open with" window, prompting me to pick an application to open the .exe file with. I can still open applications if i right-click on them and select "run as administrator", but something is still obviously wrong and i'm hoping someone knows what might be happening so they can help.

Oh, and the little tab in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (where the "safely eject hardware" button usually is") is gone.

Cannot Open .jpg Files

It just keeps displaying "loading" but it never loads. It worked fine yesterday. I have a toshiba laptop with windows 7 home premium. It alternates between working fine and having problems. I'm wondering if it has something to do with a lexmark printer i have been trying to get to work properly. I decided to just uninstal it for now but strange things have been happening ever since. I would like to just restore to a restore point but i am unable to do that as well. I get an error message and a suggestion that my virus program may be interfering.

I disabled it but it still will not restore. I was unable to play movies, i had the problem where it would just display a still of the movie. I just decided to get a different movie viewer. Sometimes wmp works though. The other one always works. I got another picture viewer but i would really like to find out whats wrong here. The problems are starting to pile up.

Unable To Open Encrypted Files

Ok, here's my situation:- my pc came with windows xp, and i encrypted some files on it. - After a couple of years, i started getting errors that indicated the drive may be going bad. - I bought a new drive, and copied all of my data there, including the encrypted files. - Soon after, i installed windows 7 rc on the new drive, and then windows 7 home edition about 8 months later. - All this time i was able to open the encrypted files on both drives (the old drive with the original files, and the new drive with the copies). - Well, the old drive finally failed and, unfortunately, the system was still booting from that drive.

So now i had a good windows 7 installation on the new drive without a boot sector. - So, i booted with my windows 7 cd, and the only option i had was to install a new version of windows. - Now i can no longer open my encrypted files (copies on the new drive) even though my user name and password are still the same. Were the 'keys' only stored on the old drive that died ?

Cannot Open Pdf Files On Web Sites

When we click on various links such the bill pay link on our credit union site, nothing happens when we do it on our desktop pc. There is no message, box or anything . Just no response whatsoever. I also noticed that we cannot open pdf files that are on web sites such as on fidelity investments. For example, the fidelity site gives you a choice of viewing statements in pdf or html format. When i select pdf, no response. Prior till now everything opened fine. Also, we have no problems with this on our laptop. I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out and so far am totally unsuccessful. Both pcs are new and run widnows 7. Do you have any suggestions?
