Windows Explorer, Photoshop and Pagemaker crash with no message when viewing folders containing JPG or TIF images
Posted on 2004-08-19
This is a problem I have on multiple computers running both Windows XP and 2000.
Folders containing images seem to become corrupt and Windows Explorer will just close with no warning and no error message.
Likewise when browsing or to 'save as' Photoshop 7 and when placing or linking an image in Pagemaker 7.
Copying the 'corrupted' folder elsewhere and renaming it sometimes works, at least temporarily, but I'd rather be able to work with my files where they're meant to be!
The computers affected are a Sony Vaio laptop running XP Pro, a Dell Dimension Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz running XP home, and a Novatech Pentium 4 1.4 Ghz running Win 2000.
I have up to date anti-virus software on all machines, I've run Ad-aware, and have downloaded all Windows updates (except SP2 so far). Any thoughts?
