Ok this is a bit strange....when in filmstrip mode some of the pictures at the bottom of the screen have a different image than that of the full size picture, how does that happen, if i select an image to show full size a different one is displayed. :tazz: :) :)

In every folder which contains pictures, and for which thumbnail view or filmstrip view has been selected, a file called 'thumbs.db' is created which allows Windows to display the thumbnails more quickly each time the folder is opened. I think that your 'thumbs.db' has become corrupted in those folders which are affected by this problem. You can safely delete thumbs.db and Windows will create a new one. It's a 'system' file so in order to see it you need to disable the "Hide protected operating system files' in Control Panel-folder options-view.
