Rename an image in nv6.Did you mean: when i try to rename an image in Nikon browser, it says cannot rename img_0002.jpg.the specified extension is not supported

On what system do you want to change the name? brand, model and OS please. It is impossible to put all possibilities here, for computers, tablets, phones and camera's.
When you are using a program, like VuewNX2 or Bridg, please also give that info.

I have windows vista 32bit OS. After doing windows updates. My computer doesnt work anymore. Is there A way to reset my computer back SINCE I can no longer boot up in safe mode or regulare mode.

Tough problem. You need to get that disk into another computer first then:
From your working Windows installation navigate to the Windows\System32\config folder on his drive and rename or *move* the following files out of the System32\config folder:
The files can be renamed with a .old extension or to eliminate clutter they can (should) be moved to another temp location.
Now, navigate to the System Volume Information folder on his drive, inside which you will fing a _restore{... folder which contains Restore Point folders numbered as such: RP1, RP2, RP3... Select the newest RP folder and inside that folder you will find a "Snapshot" folder the containing a backup of the registry hives. Copy the following files from the snapshot folder to the System32\config folder, making sure to rename them to the same names as the files they will be replacing:
That may permit you to boot the computer, if it does boot to finish the repair do a System Restore to the newest available point.
Good Luck!!

Hope this information will help.
Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya...

How do I get my samsung WB500 to recognise pictures I have renamed

If you renamed them in your computer and then inserted the card into your camera, they won't show up. The computer uses a different system to write to the card.

Run-time error '-2147467259 (80004005)': Unrecognized database format 'C:Windowssystem32wints.dat'.

To fix this program, you need to rename a folder containing a previous version of the installer. Open My Computer and navigate to C:Program FilesCommon Files. Right-click the Installshield folder and select Rename. You can rename the folder anything, but, as Google suggests, something like Installshield-old will give you a hint about the folder’s previous name. Close My Computer and try running the installer again. If that doesn't work tell me and I will see what I can do.
