Anytime I use any program to either paste or copy into or copy a picture or
photo out of the MyPictures folder. I get a dialoge box that says "abnormal
program termination" and the program shuts down. No matter what program I
use. Even if I use the explorer to browse through the folder. It closes the
folder with an error box.
What must I do to fix this problem
ThanksI have a similar issue. I am seking help as well but am using a work around.
I have multiple folders within my 'My Pictures' folder. Only select folders
cause the program to shut down.
I have found that if I copy the 'bad' folder to a CD or jump drive, I can
access the files, open them and use them just fine from the CD or jump drive.

for the Remote Assistance problem?
Second - if I am, what is the safest way to change this, what do I change it
to, and what possible unintended consequences might I incur?

I have a problem with a windows XP box I have recently acquired
I connect this box to the net through a proxy machine with a modem. On
attempting to connect the proxy dials on demand and connects and
everything is automatic from then on - usually.
What happens with the XP client is that I will attempt to go to a web
page ( google.com for example ), the proxy dials up and connects. By
this time XP has decided it would get no response and returned an
error. Now on every other box I have used as a client I could then
reload and the page would come up, ie it is only a spurious error
because the dial up connection is slower than the application's
timeout. But with XP it appears to have cached the name server
information so that subsequent connection attempts will also fail,
albeit that ...
I am having this problem with Autoplay with music CDs in the sense that it doesn't Autoplay. Autoplay is enabled and I have checked the registry settings related to Autoplay and they all seem to be OK. I have also run Autofix.exe from Microsoft but that didn't solve the problem either. This problem seems to have surfaced after I installed Easy CD-DA Extractor. Even Windows Explorer shows a blank under the CDRW/DVD drive (MATSHITA UJDA740). A workaround that I have found and that works every time is to Right-click on the CD drive and then select Eject, after ejecting right-click on the drive again, go to Autoplay tab and just click on OK (without making changes). After this when I insert a music CD, Autoplay works and Explorer shows the .cda files. ...

Having to click several times to get your email messages could have several causes. It could be that other software you have on your computer, for example, your antivirus program, is getting in the way of your email. (Always turn of AV mail filtering - it's not needed.) Or it could be a problem with SBC or Yahoo.
