Slow to open jpegs

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Talk' started by Alain Bourgeois, Oct 30, 2007.

  1. Dear all,


    on a brand new computer (3Gb RAM) running win vista, double clicking a
    simple jpeg file: more than one minute to open the file.
    Even if I associate jpg files with paint, it takes minutes to open.

    Any hint?

    Regards,
    Alain Bourgeois

    I'll bet you're using McAfee or Norton.

    After both Norton and McAfee both corrupted my Windows Mail (each at a
    different time) I removed them & installed AVG & my HP notebook is running
    75% faster. My email is still messed up & hope that a true solution is found
    someday before I really need it. My computer originally came with Norton but
    Comcast gives a free download of McAfee which wasn't worth much either.
    Everything ran so slow I thought there was something wrong with the machine.

    AVG runs on my machine too.
    However I do get messages saying it is not compatible with Vista.
    This is connected with the messages obtained when a scan is
    complete. I am fully updated.
    I have had lots of trouble with Windows Mail crashing and corrupted
    database for newsgroup messages.
    I think the main problem is that software vendors are still catching up,
    and have rushed software updates to make them compatible with Vista.
