Recently I noticed that whenever I open a picture file (eg jpeg file) by simply double clicking on the filename it takes anything up to 10 seconds for Paint Shop Pro (version 6.02) to open and the picture to be displayed (Paint Shop Pro is my 'default' picture viewer).
If I run Paint Shop Pro manually (by selecting it from Programs within the Start menu) it starts almost instantly and then when I manually 'open' a picture file within Paint Shop Pro the picture is displayed almost instantly.
So why does Paint Shop Pro take so long to start up and display a picture when I simply double click on the filename? It used to be a lot faster until recently.
Thanks in advance.
