Microsoft / Home edition

Specs: Windows XP
Reninstalled Windows XP and latest version of IE after computer crash. Transferred my full computer backup from external harddrive. However, after the transfer I am only able to open jpeg and gif photo files. Tif, art, php photo files will not open with any program I have on my computer. They opened up fine prior to my computer crash. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if Recuva can help

Before posting try google. Backup. Use anti virus software.

Congratulations for having a backup. You're one of the few.

What program did you use to open those files before the crash? Mine is set to you Nero Viewer for .tif

Is there an error message?

IE opened up the tif files and the other types that won't open now. I just had a thought, I believe that was IE 8 before the crash and now I think if have the never verion IE 9. I wonder if that is why I can't open the files? Should I go back and install the older version? I am not sure what to do.

I don't have a error message when I try to open the photo files just a small square box in the top left corner with a red X in it. Google listed this site at the top of the search page. I have run NoAdware and the updated verion I have of McAfee. So everything is clean no virus problems and some cookies listed as not critical deleted.

Try to open them in MS paint.
