ACDSee

This program changed "My Computer" in that now if I click on "C" drive it will open. Now when you see the sub folders and you click on one of them it will open with ACDSee. The order of the drop down dialog box commands has changed and I can't seem to fix it. It now will display "Open with ACDSee" 1st, then "Search" 2nd, and finally "Open", it is there but it's now 3rd place when it should be in the 1st position in the drop down dialog box. Can anyone help me fix this pain in the butt problem? I don't want to uninstall ACDSee what else can I do? Thanks.
Dave

Dave,

On install ACDC asked if you wanted it to be your default browser for viewing files. (or words to that effect). Being that ACDC made a registry change un-install and re-install may be your only option.

I'm sure others will follow to correct,
support or offer other options.

Re: ACDSee prob / + how do i remove m/s messeger?

In reply to: Re: ACDSee

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the fast reply, I am hoping someone can come up with a way for me to do it manually through the registry, if possible. I use Crazy Browser and IE isn't assigned as the pri. browser CB is.

BTW, I HATE WINXP, I have never had so many virus' as this year and I run NAV. Also I am trying to remove MS messenger permanently but it is persistent and will restart itself up to 4 or 5 times when I kill it thru Taskman. I have done a removal of this thru Add/Rem progs in the Windows section but to no avail. I could go on but I am sure you people have exper. some of the same probs as I have. I just have been lazy getting here to get some of these issues addressed, anyway, I'm here now.

To rid yourself of Microsoft Messenger. Don't uninstall it.
Boot, shut it down, go to the c:\programs files\messenger
folder and rename the exe file.
It is msmsgs.exe just take the last e off the file name. It can't run if the name is incorrect. Many things try to restart it, so this is a fast way to not let it get started.

As for XP getting more virus/parasites, there are just way more out there. It is not just the fault of XP.

I get parasites from time to time, but lately none.
I started using Firefox.

I personally don't like Norton AV,
I use Trend Micro Internet Security 4
It doesn't drag my system down like Norton does.

Thanks for the ideas Merl. Can I do the same thing with M/S Internet Explorer? It pops up almost daily with porn. When I reboot my PC there are 3 porn screens and 1 Gambling screen that are Invisable except to Taskman. Nothing even shows on the taskbar it is disgusting. I just want to go as alternative as I can with XP and disable all M/S SW that does crap I am unaware of. Can you offer up any more ideas? I'm all ears. Thanks.

Just a comment on ACDSEE and virus....

In reply to: Re: ACDSee prob / + how do i remove m/s messeger?

I have a version of ACDSEE that came with a camera. It's not very XP compatible. You didn't supply what version you were working with, but I found ACDSEE to work, run, install, uninstall proper in it's latest version. It's your choice to use an out of date version, but I just wanted to share that versions do make a difference.

About virus in general. What I find is that some don't use an antivirus and many more don't understand PARASITES which are not dealt with by any known antivirus. XP is not the cause/issue of these pests. For the most part its Internet Explorer or browsers that are based on Internet Explorer. Light reading about these pests at http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/

In closing, it's your choice to let the pests in.

"Hey Bob, I am using ACDSee ver 4.0."

They are up to version 6.0... I wonder what OS 4.0 supports?

Modify the Default File Type Action to Stop ACDSee

In reply to: ACDSee

In a My Computers window, click Tools | Folder Options | File Types. Then select the "File Folder" and/or "Folder" option (I'm not sure which in your case) and click on Advanced. This will open a dialog box that allows you to change the default Action associated with folders. Select Open, not Open with ACDSee, and then click Default, OK, OK.
It worked for me in a simlar situation. Good luck!
