How do i restore image file types?

If the software that you want to use to open the image is in the list of programs to open with;
right click on the file you want to open,
select open with,
select the program that you want to use,
make sure that the check box to always use this program for this file type is checked,
open the file.

The file type should now be associated with the program that you selected.

Another method, is to use the repair section of tweakui to repair file associations.

You can also manually add the file extensions to the file type list.

There are several articles on the Tech Republic web site that go through the details.
Search for file associations
Use all lower case letters.

I suggest that you reinstall picviewer or whatever program you wish to view the pictures with. You might also need to reinstall internet explorer. And possible Win98se. Deleteing graphic extensions from the registry tends to creat a mess, sincealmost everything relies on being able to access and display graphics.

We have to enable your previous default program to open your picture files.

When the "Open With" window opens after doubleclicking on such a file you have to select from the drop down list or from the Browse button the apropriate default .exe forthe job. For example for files with extension .BMP you could use MSPAINT.

Tell me if this help or if you need additional help.
