    Uri, if you want to post things like this you need to quote the Microsoft Article as most people will not want to randomly delete things based on a forum post.

        I'm just wondering what brought this post on?
        Does this mean we will see other knowledge base articles brought up, dusted off and posted for our edification?

        Or is this really a reply to another thread that has gone astray?

            Terribly sorry they jumped all over you about posting a problem on this forum.

            However, by posting the problem, and the solution, it helped me.

            In my case, a customer's computer indeed had Vista and Outlook 2007.

            Somehow, the default for a TIF file is NOT set. Or maybe it is 'unset' somehow?

            Anyhow, it tried to pull up an Internet Explorer page (since that resizes jpgs automatically, why not use it, eh?)

            Instead, it went into a loop - with narry a message saying why it could not open up IE.

            Instead, I changed the default program to Windows Gallery, and now TIF's open ok.

            Again, thank you for posting. It was greatly appreciated, because ideas and efforts are more important than protocol and preamble.
