I am trying to use Picasa 3 and was doing great, now when I try to use it I am getting a message that says CBlockFile::open Block err=2 thumbs ob I love the program and use it daily please tell me how...


Every folder on your C: drive that contains any picture will contain a file named 'thumbs.db'.
So, close Picasas.
Open "My Pictures", and then open the folder that contains the picture.
Click 'Tools".
Click "Folder Options".
Click "View"
Change the setting to "view hidden files".
Delete that 'thumbs.db' file.
Change the setting to "hide hidden files".
Re-open Picasa.
Picasa will rebuild that 'thumbs.db' file.

My Windows Explorer does not show extentions


By default, file extensions for known file types are hidden in Windows XP. However, you can change this setting so that file extensions are shown for files in a certain folder or for all files on your hard disk.
To show file extensions, first open any folder on your hard drive, such as "My Computer" or "My Documents." Then select "Folder Options..." from the Tools menu as shown below.
545a526.gif When the Folder Options window opens, click the View tab. This will show the file and folder view settings.
95b32b0.gif One of the options under Advanced settings is "Hide extensions for known file types." If this option is checked, uncheck the checkbox and click Apply or OK. This setting is system wide, so unchecking this box will make file extensions appear in all folders.
If you decide to hide file extensions at a later time, you can check the box again and click OK to revert back to the previous settings.
