hey, i guess this is an odd question, one that i hope one of you can crack. All of a sudden, when i try to open any image file from my desktop it takes like 20-30 seconds to open in windows picture and fax viewer. if i move the file anywhere other than my desktop it opens in a snap. this annoying bug has been killin me over the past few month, and i've tried coping with it, but i've completely given up. so if any of you that have the same problem or know the solution to this, do tell. btw, i'm running windows xp, 1Gig 333 ram, 80 GB HD, Intel P4 2.53. thanks!
