Using XP Home, SP2.

After installiation of Office 2003, the default program for viewing .TIF
images unexpectedyly changed from Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to MS
Office Document Imaging.

I know how to change the program association...but searches using
obvious file names/locations for the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer
name/location were unsuccesful.


Can anybody tell me what it's called and where it resides?

Thanks

Disregard: The Windows Picture and Fax viewer was actually visible as an
option in the context menu for the program type to associate with .tif
files....

As a means of further information, the viewer is not an executable in and of
itself, but rather is a function of the shimgvw.dll file as executed by
rundll32.exe.
