Both IrfanView and Paint.Net will resize photos and both are free and easy to use.

I'd go for Paint. Plenty of tutorials if you use a search engine.

WOT readings are from people who do not read web pages properly. Dumped WOT a long time ago. Shite - in my humble opinion .

Alternative download site if need be, cnet.

Looks like you may be in a minority of one.

Wuggy Possibly but read what the punters say on some sites. A lot are disgruntled by the service they received but you only read one side of the argument. That's why I dumped WOT as it is not very reliable. I prefer McAfee's site advisor who are mainly concerned about possible links to malware sites.

Firefox disables McAfee Site Advisor on my PC due to instabiity and crashes. No way round it as far as I can see even with McAfee SEcurity installed so WOT does fine for me.

Strange? I use FF as a second browser, version 7.0.1, and McAfee site advisor runs OK.

My apologies, we are deviating from your original thread, so will no longer post as you are getting emails no longer pertaining to your problem.

Paint.Net is a non pervasive program and will do all you need in my humble opinion.
