My Pictures won't open
I have windows 2000 and never had any problem opening My Pictures file folders in My Documents, but all of the sudden it won't open when I double click on My Pictures!!!
The Internet Explore icon in the upper right corner keeps searching, but never finds the file.
The only way I can see the pictures is when I go to the Start menu, Run and browse the my pictures file folder. Then I can view one picture at a time.
I'd like to be able to open MY Pictures in My Documents and view the thumbnail of the pictures like it was before.
Does anyone know what the problem is???

Start > Run
type in regsvr32 shimgvw.dll and hit enter (may need a reboot.)

Thank you for replying!!! I tried the regsvr32 shimgvw.dll, but didn't work. Do you know any other way to fix this problem?

sorry, I am out of idea except to suggest a virus / spyware / malware scan.

How about renamiing the folder to something else ?
eg My pictures Old
Then see if you can see the files within it.
Then create a new My Pictures folder and copy the desktop.ini file from the old folder to the new one and reboot.

Create a new folder and copy the My Pictures Old folder to the new folder.
Then see if you can open that copy of the folder.

Thank you, I created a new folder,transfer all the pix to the new folder and now the folder opens finally!!!
I see the name of the JPEG file and when I double click them, I can see the pix. But thumbnail view doesn't work. When I click on thumbnail under View, the folder goes blank. Do you know what is causing it to go blank???
