Missing Icon

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Hi,

I'm not sure how it happened, but all my files that I have set to open with
Windows Picture and Fax viewer all display the "missing icon" icon. The one
with the picture of a Windows 95 window on a white page. I figure the normal
icon for pictures got deleted somehow, but I'd like to fix this without
re-installing Windows if possible! Thanks.

    Thank you for your response. I tried the Restore link you sent me, but still
    no luck (I restarted after the changes too).

    The icons for Picture and fax viewer is stored in shimgvw.dll. So try
    registering it:

    Start | Run | Type regsvr32 shimgvw.dll | OK.

    Restart.

    FixPixME.inf Win ME uses shimgvw.dll modules run by rundll.exe which is different than Win 98 which uses Internet Explorer to open and view picture files. This is what displays and the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. You can run the other FixPix programs on Win ME (or Win XP) without causing problems but you may not have the full compliment of features available with shimgvw.dll. This version of FixPix is the best choice for repairing a WinME system and one is best off using a restore point to repair Win XP. The download is a compressed folder, Fld9, containing FixPixME.inf and ReadMe.txt.
