Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a problem with the JPEG Windows Pictures and Fax Viewer. It does not just show one logo that was sent via a professional e-mail, but it will also show photos of nearly every website I go on. So, if this person clicks on that "attachment" which is their professional logo - they can also see a whole bunch of other photos (if they keep clicking) which should be absolutely private. Some of this is very embarassing as I shop a lot on line and this person can (if he/she wants to) see all of the places I go to online and what I'm looking at. I went to one website that had porn on it - I didn't know it was going to - and it's those kinds of things, if the person clicked on the attachement that automatically went back with my response e-mail - then they can see every page I go to - it's like this JPEG is picking up anything and everything in sight and then keeps it there like it's one of my saved photos. Thank you.

Wow, that's a new one. I can't imagine how this happened other than you are infected with some Malware, what we used to call Monkey Ware as it monkeyed with your system.

First, I would suggest you visit this website and see what it finds by doing a full system scan of your hard drives.

http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

Once you click to start the scan engine, you will probably be prompted via the yellow bar at the top of your page to allow an Active X controller to be downloaded. This control is how the engine works against your hard drive.

What will happen is that the scanner will likely find a Malware Active X control you got somehow that is allowing all embedded pictures to view your Internet Cache images.

After they scan you will want to change some settings in Internet Explorer, by accessing Internet Options in your Control Panel. Set the History to 1 day and the Internet Cache size to 1MB or less, Zero if it will take it or even better to tell it to not Cache any images, etc.

Any questions on a follow up to this please use the comment box below to ask away.

Regards,

What type of attachment it is? Is it JPEG(image), or Word File or , Excel File? To open the file type you should select the proper application. You can try the following thing while opening your e-mail attachment. right click on the Attachment which you have download and select Open With. It'll show you the list of application through which you can view your attachment. In your case i thing Window Media player is selected by default that why when ever you try to open it keeps on opening in Media Player.
First try to know what type of mail attachment you are getting, If you have Word file then select Open with "Microsoft word", If any image then Select "windows picture and fax viewer".
If it is a .PDF file type then you should open it with Adobe Reader(IF you don't have Adobe reader then You need to download it from net to few it.
Similarly if it is ZIP. file then you must have Win ZIP software to open it.

This depends of the email client you are using. If they are sent as attachments then save those attachments or download them to your hard drive. If they are embedded in the email then you will want to right click on the pictures and choose 'save as'.
Once the pictures are in the desired folder you can right click on the file again and choose 'rename' This will give you the option to name the picture anyway you like.

Problem in opening picture files


Its possible that you installed a graphic program that upon install it changed the extension of your picture files. An example would be photoshop, This program could change your JPG files to PSD format upon install.
You can download a software program that can convert your pictures from the PSD ext. to JPEG. Once such program is (Easy Graphic Converter), It is Free... Another excellent program is Graphic Workshop. I think that one is trial but it has a time limit.

If you don't want to go that route you can go into your file ext. settings and change it to where a jpg file will be opened with another program other than PhotoShop. This might solve your problem.

To get to this screen, you can go into ( My Documents ) click on ( tools) at the top on the menu bar. Then click on ( Folder Options ). From there click in ( File Types ). Then find your JPG ext.
and it will tell you what program opens your jpg files. If it says CS3, change it to something else like WIndows Picture and Fax Viewer or something else.

Depending on the type of file you are downloading, If its a Jpeg. Windows Fax & Picture viewer should open it.

Check the file extension that you downloaded and verify it is an Image file i.e (bmp, tiff, jpeg, gif)... Then, right click that file, choose properties and see Which program opens it.

If there isnt a default setup Click on Change...and choose Windows Fax & Picture Viewer502fd15.jpg
