I like CompuPic32 for viewing and image conversions. If you go to Download (http://download.cnet.com/) and search with graphics viewer, you will find a lot of downloadable shareware, freeware, and demo programs.

Sounds like all those photos did indeed get associated with software that you uninstalled. I don't recall an easy way to re-associate the pics with MS Photo Editor or the Kodak Imaging (I think this comes on the 98 SE disc). You can, however, hold down the shift key and right-click on the pic
then select "open with" when the window pops up choose the program you want to open the pics with (maybe you do have some type of viewer in there besides the Kodak Imager) before clicking "OK" put a check in the box "always use to open this file" (something like that). It will re-associate the file. Just do one file to see what it looks like before you commit the others. I know that in some of the other media players and such there is a selection in the options to associate all media of that type with one device, etc. I thought MS Photo Editor was part of the basic package as well, but I don't see it on my 98 SE, maybe I skipped in during install, but I didn't see it in the Add New Programs list either...Oh well. I hope this at least lets you view the pics for now.

Hello everyone,

Not sure if this works for photo associations, but Tweak UI, under repair section, has a repair association feature. It says it will restore file association back to Windows default. Worth a try?

Tweak UI can be found lots of places, but you might try here:

As for graphics veiwing programs, I agree with Reid. CompuPic32 is not too shabby.
