Hello folks, I hope someone out there has experienced this before, and can help resolve the problem that I have. I have about 600-odd images from a digital camera in my 'My Pictures' folder. Now, when I try to view them using XP's Picture Viewer, or even using Adobe PhotoAlbum sometimes XP will just lockup, and I end up having to restart the machine. It's not always the same picture that causes it, simply that whilst viewing them the whole thing will just lock. I thought it was a memory issue, but I've upgraded to 512mb RAM and though it is great for other stuff, I've still got this problem! On annoyances.org someone suggested that I clear the TEMP folder, but didn't specify exactly which folder or where it was. So I emptied every TEMP folder that I could find, but to no joy. Please, can anyone help? I'm sick and tired of having to restart the machine every time I look at some pics - god only knows what it's doing to my hard drive having to restart all the bloody time. My specs: Athlon 1.4, 512 mb SDRAM, ABIT KT7A, and a maxtor 80G hard drive. I would really appreciate any input!
