Problems deleting files

  Dirty Dick 22:41 09 May 2004

I am cataloging lots of photographs into many folders. Some are blurred so I try to delete them by either right clicking and deleting or dragging them to the recycle bin. However when I try this Windows Installer opens and tries to install Omnipage something or other, but it can't find it. Anybody know how to solve this annoying problem? I am running Windows XP Pro.

omnipage click here maybe

what do you normaly use to view the pics?

try right clicking a jpeg etc and choose 'open with/choose program'

browse to find the program you normally use like windows picture and fax viewer or paint shop etc

then tick 'always use selected program to open this kind of file"

When I right click the jpeg I don't get the list of options ie open,delete,rename etc. It just opens Windows Installer and then stops half way through. HOWEVER I have just found out that my nephiews have HALF Installed the Omni Page programme. I installed the rest and it appears as though its now ok
Thanks Huggy
