Software crash browsing folders with images

Hi
using various editing software (such as Picasa, Irfan View, PhotoShop, NVU Web Editor) when I browse folders with images (.jpg files) in order to open/save files, the "open/save windows" suddenly closes and the software crashes.
No similar errors occurs browsing the same folders within Windows or using the forementioned softwares with other types of files (docs, video, music).
PC: OS Windows 7 Home Premium 64 with Service Pack 1; Intel i5 processor; RAM 6GB.
Thank You in advance

  1. To confirm, this only happens with JPGs and with various applications?

    Also, what is your default program for opening JPGs?
  2. Yes, this only happens with JPGs and with various applications.
    The default program is Windows Picture and Fax Viewer
  3. Have you tried to change the default application to one of the other programs to see if that changes the behavior?
  4. I used to have this problem from time to time. In every case, it turned out to be a corrupt .jpg somewhere in the folder. Turning preview images off may help you find the culprit, because you'll be able to have the folder open long enough to find it.

    +1, I too have seen this. Depending on the number of files, this may take a bit of work.
  6. Maybe I've found a solution: using a HP diagnostic software I discovered that the errors were generated by FotoTaggerToolbar.dll, so I uninstalled the Foto Tagger software (that was never running while these errors occurred !) and now everything seems to work correctly.
    Thank you for your help.

    Link to this software? I have a problem where a great number of programs from many publishers, x64 capable or not, will just crash if I browse certain file paths or folders or hdd's... no matter the program. The more freeware-ish it is, the more likely it will crash before I can get anywhere...

    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

    Help? :)
