After scanning 175 images which were named book1.jpg to book175.jpg I added a few images which I renamed book book50a.jpg and book70a.jpg. I renamed the images so I could sort them by name. Now I find that several of the thumbnail images do not match the actual image. In other words if I click on the thumbnail in My Pictures in Thumbnail View a different image from the one in the thumbnail appears in the Windows and Fax Viewer window. The same thing happens when I use the Film Strip View. When I highlight the image in the film strip, a different image appears above the film strip image. My guess is that the index to the actual image has been corrupted. Can this be corrected? Or is there some other problem?

Try deleting the file called 'THUMBS.DB' in the folder where your images are (My Pictures?). Windows will create a new one next time you view the images in thumbnail view. Could be the existing thumbs.db file is corrupted.

I do not have a Thumbs.db file in the folder with the images. ( I have selected "Show hidden and system files". I have not checked "Do not cache thumbnails". ) The only file with a Thumbs.db file in in the image file in a Web. I have check another computer and find no Thumbs.db file in any of the My Picture folder there either.

You need to disable this folder-view option lower down the list:
"Hide Protected Operating System Files". Then you should see THUMBS.DB

Delete it (ignore the warning -- trust me!) Close 'My Pictures' folder then re-open it. Windows will create a new DB file.

Don't forget to re-hide protected OS files again if other people use your PC. it's safer that way.
