Click on Start/Run and paste this as it is without the quotes " rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen " (change the drive letter if u need to) The windows picture and fax viewer should open and say no preview available. If it doesn't, the file/registry has got corrupted somehow. Try doing a system restore to a date before the day u noticed the prob (duh, but just trying to be clear).

If u don't have any restore points then alternatively u cud download and add a registry entry from here
and see if that works. (if ur using firefox, right click on link and save link as)

Yes, do check it out. I'm sure you will like it ! :D Besides being a viewer, it also has lots of neat features for basic editing of images.

In that case gimme ur mail id and i'll send u the dll file. Only possible solution remaining apart from re-installing windows altogether (which ain't worth doing for a minor issue like this) coz i don't think there is any way u can re-install just the picture viewer from the xp cd since it's not included in the add/remove windows components list.
