I tried a trial version of LViewPro a while back. The trial period ran out (no biggie) so I can no longer use it. I thought I had deleted it, but apparently not. When I had initially downloaded it, it automatically became my default when I opened my files/pics/etc in "My Documents". Once it quit working, I got everything to open with Adobe Photoshop 4.0 (NOT a trail version). Everything went well except now I can't access some of the pics (especially once I tried to transfer them to CD-ROM) because I don't have LViewPro.

How can I change the default program that opens my stuff from LViewPro to Adobe??????

I'd really like to save my pics (I have a couple thousand) in case I crash and burn, but I can't! Help!!!!

Open Windows Explorer and click "View". Choose "Folder Options", then "File Types". If you see anything with "LViewPro" there, delete it.

Or open Windows Explorer, find the file you wish to open with PhotoShop, right-click it while holding down the SHIFT-key, choose "Open With", choose PhotoShop and make sure the "Always use this program to open this file type" (or something similar) is checked.

Yah... what Cliff said.

Beware downloading shareware programs with time limitations Monkeyman. Sometimes you have to delete keys in the registry to get rid of annoying programs and little quirks that keep popping up... That, or open your wallet to the computer gods and make a sacrificial offering. $$$

Monkeyman,
Just out of curiosity, where did you get your trial version of L-View Pro?
I had a trial version that was included on my original Mindspring disk, about three years ago. It never quit working, just gave me a "nag screen" when I used it.

I just did a search for "LViewPro" and came up with the link. I don't mind a nag window. I just wish I could pretend that I had never downloaded it.

Cliff--Your idea didn't seem to work. I'll try it again tomorrow. I gotta go to bed now. Just got off of work and I have to be back in there by 3pm for another 17 hours. 108 hours last week and this week doesn't look to be any better. On the plus side, it does seem that this is getting me somewhere as I get to start training for a possible managershipness in a couple of weeks.

I love lviewpro because it pops the pictures up quickly when you double click it in a file manager or in mycomputer.

But all my lviewpro are shareware but they have no time expiration. They just show howmany times you have used the program and you click okay.

To get rid of it, do what cliff says cause his pic is so kewl, and also when looking down the list, look at the extensions for jpeg, bmp, gif, etc.. and what program is used to open them.

I'm using LView32. Don't quite know where it came from, I think my brother or dad put it on the 'puter. I don't get any nag screens or anything, because it's freeware. works great! For any real photo stuff, I use Paint Shop Pro 5.0... If anyone wants Lview32, I'll upload it. only 230k zipped.
