Windows XP Desktop and JPEG Files

  Matt45 07:12 15 May 2004

When I open a "*.jpg" file on the desktop, it takes about 50 seconds to open in which time the Windows Picture & Fax Viewer appears with a blank screen saying "Generating Preview..." While this message is displayed, I cannot do anything as the computer appears to lock up but eventually the picture is displayed and everything is fine again. I am running Windows XP Professional Edition. The only other things on my desktop are shortcuts to my folders on other computers on my home network. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Is the rest of your pc working normally?eg, do you have to wait a long time for any other programs to load etc etc.
