Question about Computers & Internet

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,
Worldvet

I have been sent pictures from my daughter via gmail I am not on gmail but on email can I access these pictures


Your e-mail provider should allow you to download the pictures on your computer. Be aware if the pictures are to big, most providers don't send them through, or your mail box will be filled in no time.
Why not make a free gmail account, to be able to send and receive thousands of pictures?
After you have the pictures on your computer, you need a program to view the pictures. Windows does have picture viewer, and most operating systems have a viewer, but perhaps you should install a free program like GIMP, to view the pictures.

Have rec'd email with a jpg file attached How can I open it


JPG, JPEG, are standard picture files. By default windows XP should be able to open them. But, sometimes Email programs block those files (attachments) because of infection potential. Check your mail security settings, specifically, look for a setting that says "block potentially harmful attachments" and uncheck it. then reopen your mail client program.

My picture will not open when I double click on it. I am using windows XP and usually double click to open my pictures in Nero Photo viewer for editing, now it says ''cannot open''


try right clicking the pic and choosing "open with" then choose a diffrnt imaging program such as microsoft image and fax viewer (default windows Jpeg) if it still doesnt open in that then the picture is probably currupt

JPEG pictures do not display in WIN XP media center


seems like a codec confliction to me.
uninstall any codecs that you have installed: divx, quicktime etc then download the "k-lite codec pack" for codec issues or alternatively download "media player classic", you can view jpeg images using media player classic aswell as a wide variation of video formats.
to view pictures in media player classic (not to be confused with an old version of windows media player by the way), simpely open mediaplayerclassic.exe and drag the images you need to veiw on top of it.

hope this helps.

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.
