clicked on the option to decrease the size of my pictures, It appears to
work however the sizes remain the same. anyone have any suggestions...?

What size are the images?
Try this, maybe it will restore the option:
go to...Start / Run and type:
(without the quotes)(Yes, there's
a space between 2 and S)
A dialog box should report the following:
"DllRegisterServer in SHIMGVW.DLL succeeded"
Also, you might find the following free Power
Toy to be useful:
OK, go to the following link and download and
Then you can open any folder that contains
images and you will have an option to resize.
Just right click the selected image files and
choose Resize Pictures from the menu. You
can select one image or a whole group.
The program will place the resized copies in
the folder with your originals.
(Tip: *Never* overwrite your originals)
BTW...when resizing if you go to...Advanced
Button / Custom...and enter 640 in each field...
that will be a good size for e-mail purposes.
