Uninstalled Google Chrome, but Windows Photo Gallery does not always work.

Using Vista Home Premium. Downloaded a program from small utility and it turns out Google Chrome, which I didn't, was grafted on the program and installed itself without my OK. I uninstalled the program utility and Google Chrome. With the help from here, I have eliminated the problem of links in the emails no longer works, but have been unable to get Windows Picture Gallery working again.

I renamed the file "pictures.pd4" as suggested here. That did not help.

Earlier you mentioned Pictures.pd4... that indicates a
old version of photo gallery. Have you tried to download
and install the current version of Windows Live Photo
Gallery 2011?

(FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
Restore point before installing software or updates)

  • Windows Photo Gallery does not

    Hello

    I use Windows Photo Gallery to see all my photos. Recently, when I tried to display a photo (in jpg format) file an error appears and says "error loading C:\ProgramFiles\WindowsPhotoGallery\PhotoViewer.dll the system cannot find message for message number 0 x %1 in the message for %2 file.»

    Then when I tried to open the Windows Photo Gallery, this error pops up "cannot find 'C:\ProgramFiles\WindowsPhotoGallery\PhotoViewer.exe' make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again."

    I don't remember when this started to happen, but I would be really grateful if someone could help me find a solution. Thank you.

    Hello, Gloria

    I just wanted you to know that I managed to do that work again. I had other problems with my computer and have my computer reformatted. After that, the Gallery worked. I tried to fix it by following the steps of checking file you gave me, but it did not work. Thanks for trying to help. I appreciate it! :)

  • Windows Photo Gallery does not save the edited images.

    I have problems editing contrast and red-eye with Windows Photo Gallery.  I get rid of the red eye and change the brightness, close gallery and get an error message "an error prevents photo library to save this image."  The image isn't 'read only', it is a jpeg file, and I am the owner/user.  I edited many other images, but now it restricts me to do these as well as a few others that I've ever edit.  Any ideas on what's going on?

    Hello sjleite,

    Thanks for posting on the Microsoft answers Community Forum.

    If you encounter problems, saving images edited when you could before, I would ask

    If you have installed the 3rd party software that may interfere with the Windows Photo Gallery.

    (1) If you have a third Party photo editing software, try removing it and see if that doesn't

    correct your problem.

    (2) other forums, I found several mentions to be a problem with a corrupted author field. Look in the file properties Details page. You can get the properties on the photo in question, scroll to the right section of author and origin and remove characters. Select apply and close the file. If the field of copyright has no characters to remove, try adding a few characters and then delete them.

    (3) the last thing to try is to check the permission on the Windows Photo Gallery.

    Go at the beginning and list programs. Right-click on the icon of photo gallery windows live and go to properties. Select tab security put highlight the Everyone group, click the button change. Put a control under all permissions allow. Then do the same for the users group. Click on apply or OK.

    If please post again and let us know if these suggestions helped solve your problem or if you need further assistance.

    Sincerely,

    For Windows Photo Gallery... just change the path:

    %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows photo Gallery

    After Renaming Pictures.pd4 you will need to re-catalogue
    your photos. If rename Pictures.pd4 does not resolve the
    problem... you can delete the new file Pictures.pd4 and
    change the name of the original file to Pictures.pd4
    and the catalog is restored.

    In later versions of Windows Live Photo Gallery...
    the name of the file is Pictures.pd5. John Inzer - MS - MVP - digital media experience

    Hi willmulholland,

    1. What is the file format of the uploaded image?

    2. use the Windows or Windows Photo Gallery live photo gallery?

    3. you receive an error message when you try to view the images uploaded using Windows Photo Gallery?

    4. are you having similar problem when displaying any other picture using Windows Photo Gallery?

    If you use Windows live photo gallery, then I would say that you post your question in the forums of Windows live.

    Number 4) helped to me exactly the same problem:
    I just removed the folder my pictures from the picture library and put again; I'm guessing that the reindexing did the trick.

    Although a little concerned why this happens in the first place. I have absolutely nothing: he worked 2 (*) days, then no new program installed, not even new photos imported, maybe some updates for Windows and kaboom. Everything disappeared from the Photos app (everything from my computer, SkyDrive worked all the time.)
