Please help if you can. I have been taking the memory stick from the camera, place it in the media reader. A window opens and asks me what program I would like to use to open the photos.

I usually use "windows explorer". After double clicking the file containing the pixs it used to open up with thumbnails of the pixs along the bottom of the window. I could then double click a photo and it would blow up to a good size for viewing. This would also show a couple arrowed buttons so I could scroll back and forth through the pixs and a few other options.

A couple days ago the format has changed. Open file and pixs are spread out in a window, double click to blow up and the photo comes up (blown up) in a window, but it runs off the screen so you can't see the whole photo. Also the window is so far off the screen I can't close it. I can just get the mouse over the "minimize" button.

If I right click the header of the window I can't close the photo, just delete it. I have been minimizing the photo to the toolbar (tray??) at the bottom of the screen then I can right click the photo and close it. The photo then returns to the file with the rest.

I have the same problem in my pictures folder as well.

I did try to update my NVIDIA driver the other day but I'm not sure if I actually got any updates installed.

If I had an idea where to start it seems like this shouldn't be to bad to fix.

Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks....................Kent

PS; Leaving the house for about two hours but will reply if needed when I return
