Hi, for some reason all my message did not get across, bizarre! I am unable to open my Picasa 3 no matter what I try. If I delete the software in question and re-instal, will I have to import all my photos again from > My Pictures> ?

The pictures will be reacquired automatically if you should decide to reinstall Picasa.

As Chronus says, it will re acquire them automatically, but be patient as if you have a lot of photos, it will take a little while. It's not instant !

What do you mean by * I re-installed Picasa, downloaded ok.* You would obviously have downloaded Picasa to have reinstall it? Do you mean the program reacquired your photo's OK? but then would not open. Following aIB's advice seems to be an excellent suggestion.

Hi, Sorry yes I re-installed, and I have already to ALB advice being step 3 but it still does not work. Tried> Control alt delete/ task manager/ processes/ but there is no Picasa there?

What exactly happens when you double click Picasa? Do you get an error message? If so what is the message? What OS are you using? What do you use Picasa for as there are plenty of alternatives? Is there some particular feature that you use in Picasa that you cannot find elsewhere?
