    I bought a Notebook two days ago with Vista installed.
    This is in fact the first time I work with Vista as I usually
    (always) have XP installed. For some or another reason
    Vista can not display jpg's or png images. Does somebody
    have a solution?

    Thanks for the reply, Kabuki. I did the same before asking the
    question here and did not get a real answer there, only speculations.
    Most repliers suggest a specific viewer to be installed which should
    not be needed because why is not necessary in XP?
    Without exception I make use of the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer
    (unless working on a picture of course) when using XP. I am still
    using XP on my desktops and should maybe
    simply throw Vista off and replace it with XP on the Notebook.
    BTW, this (I guess) would only be a flaw to one specific version of
    Vista. Thanks again for your reply and your search on Google. (the
    problem does not happen to be only thumbnail view but complete JPG)

    Problem is non-existent, Kabuki.
    I am using a grabber program by the name 'Snagit'
    and it is only jpg's been made with Snagit that Vista
    does not show. My camera photos are normally viewable.
    Wonder what is the difference? There are obvious a difference
    between the jpgs & jpgs.

    Here is a perfect example, Kabuki. You'll remember I said most of it
    are captures made of text in correspondence which I save as jpg's
    on my PC. This was (one of) the reason(s) for buying the notebook
    and I was to much in a hurry saying it can open no jpeg.
    After posting my letter I found it to have no problem with my photos.
    Explanation (and excuse) therefore is that I was busy setting up the
    norebook:) I don't have any problems with it, because I can simply
    recapture it. Anyway, here it is:)
