It doesn't work except when I click on the button for it
in the box in the bottom left hand corner of the right
hand pane in Windows Explorer. I've tried changing the
program that JPGs open with and it didn't help.

Try the regfile available here: http://aumha.org/downloads/jpgprevw.zip
Download, unzip, d-click (or r-click, select merge).

Or just open up the Run box (in Start Menu) and type
REGSVR32 THUMBVW.DLL
This re-registers the ability to produce thumbnails.

I forgot to mention that I was also having trouble with
thumbnails. I did the REGSVR32 THUMBVW.DLL and now they
work(Thanks Mike Cawood),but I merged both reg files and
Image Preview still doesn't work. The pics open in
PhotoEditor and a message says Windows couldn't find them.

Mike,

However it now looks as if you are a mind reader by posting the solution
to the unasked question. Well done. <vbg>

Normally, changing the program that .jpg opens with does the trick (I'm
talking specifically about going from Photo Editor to Image Preview,
something I have to do after installing Office 2000, since IP is better than
PE at displaying images).

Presumably you've r-clicked a .jpg, selected Open With/Choose Program (or
Properties/Opens With), selected Image Preview and put a check in *Always
open this file type with*?

If so, try the reg file in the attached zip.

Yes, I've right-clicked on a jpg, etc. I did it again
after merging jpgimg.reg and it still opened in
PhotoEditor and I still got the message.

If you're still there, Henry, try installing Irfanview:
http://www.irfanview.com/download_sites.htm and associating it with .jpgs.
You might want to keep Irfanview as default graphic files viewer anyway, but
lets see if you *can*.

Interestingly, I ran the Photo Editor uninstall myself tonight (in XP) but
it was still there afterwards. However I have no problems with associations,
I just don't want it in the Open With list when I never use it.

I tried several download sites and it never worked.
PhotoEditor is still uninstalled. If I double-click on a
jpg, Windows installer tries to install PhotoEditor.

Presumably you mean, then, it didn't download. This one works perfectly

It downloaded. During installation I put a check in the
box for JPGs but when I double-clicked on a pic,
PhotoEditor still tried to install. Then I right-clicked
on a pic, chose "choose program" and associated it with
JPGs that way. It worked.

Glad to hear that. I'm supposing they're associated with IrfanView, rather
than Image Preview. I do wonder if this is a fix or a kludge, but truth to
say I think when you've got IrfanView configured to your taste, it's better
than anything that comes with windows (though I do like the options
available in XP! But even in XP I edit graphics files with IrfanView).
