eh, it seems this is pretty troublesome software

once I installed it took over my images.

they no longer open up in ACDsee, but instead in mozilla browser.

I tried to fonfigure the settings to default as they were, but can't do anything about it. Can anyone help, give an advice, or if anyone had similar trouble?

Evil post count. ;P

As for your problem, the less problematic would be reinstal acdsee or check if it can assign some extensions to itself.

NEver had any such problem, and mozilla is my default browser.

ANyhoo, open up your windows explorer.
Go to either View > Folder Options or Tools > Folder Options, depending on which version of Windows you are using.

Click on the 'file types' tab, and you can specify which programs open which types of files.

I also haven't had this problem specifically but I have had this happen when installing old Netscape versions. Are you installing the mozilla.org builds or the Netscape bundles?

I am using Win2K

and Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

I reinstalled ACDsee classic....see to work, but for some reason I still see those stupid mozilla icons on every image file...

The problem is that mozilla changed the default application for the image type when you installed it.

To fix this problem open Windows Explorer and go to the View-->Folder Options menu.

Now click on the File Types tab. You will see a list of the various file types recognized by your machine.

Find the file type for the images you are having problems with. For example, if the file type for the problem images is .gif look for the gif entry in the list of file types.

With the .gif file type hi-lited select the Edit... button.

Under the actions menu on the Edit... dialog hi-lite the open action and again select the Edit... button. This will open another dialog box that will allow you to change the default program that will open this type of tile.

Save your changes and repeat this process for any other file types you want to assign to the other program.

This problem is not unique to mozilla. Many applications will change the default application associated with a file type when they are installed.

...A simpler way might be to open ACDSee and click Tools>File Associations

check off all the image types you'd like ACDSee to handle on 'double-click' (for example, you might want to uncheck '.PSD')

then do some searching deep inside and determine if you want to 'Verify these file associations when starting ACDSee'. I personally only leave it on for a couple of boots and then uncheck it because it does this ugly 'verifying your filetypes' lag before it opens an image which kinda pisses me off...

Then you might try hitting OK... or you could just hit the power button... who cares, really?

the simples way to reasign a file type must be this one

-press shift while right clicking an image.
-choose open with
-choose your app (acdc in this case)
-click on 'always open with this application'
-click ok.

done.
