I made some changes and am not sure what I did.  Before, when I right clicked and saved pics from a web page into my folder, I could click the pic once in my folder and get a preview of it in the left corner of the folder.  Now, I cannot unless I change the pic to a bitmap image or something.  I still have my folder set to view "as web page" so that's not it.  I must have changed the folder options somehow.  The icons used to show as that little JPEG image and now all the icons show as a little blue "e" in a web page.  Properties says it is a "JPG" file.  HOW CAN I CHANGE IT BACK?

one way is to boot to dos, and from the prompt type scanreg /restore
choose a date before  this happened
not the space between scanreg and /restore
or go here and get the fix

I actually have Second Chance installed, but I have no idea when this started and now it has been at least a few weeks and I don't want to lose other changes I have made.
