AHH!! My "confuser" has lost its little wizard that appears when you opt to email a picture offering to make pictures smaller. I've been to Help & Support, typed in "Email picture size" & chosen the first option. I've followed the instructions (actualy A responsible Adult has)Method 1.replacing the sendmail.dll file But in Method 2. Verify Registry Settings. My jpg bit doesn't have a PerceivedType to modify. Does this make sense? Can anyone help? Thank you!

Try giving the system file checker a run

Insert the XP CD and go to

start

then

run

then
sfc /scannow

Thank you for your reply, followed your instructions & windows did its checking. Then it ended. Would it have shown an error message? My wizard still hasn't returned, do you have another spell?

click here and look at number 269
Seems you save the below as a reg file and doubleclick on it. It will then merge with the registry and after a reboot you should be ok. Copy the below and save as image.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpeg]
"PerceivedType"="image"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg]
"PerceivedType"="image"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bmp]
"PerceivedType"="image"

I shall try this tomorrow - too dangerous to let me loose on the confuser at this time of night, heavens knows the damage I could cause! Will let you know if we're cured. Thanx again!!

It shouldn't cause a problem but best to be careful; good luck.
