not responding

Post by CowboyTim »

Classic, v. 2.49.2
LOVES to "not respond" for 3 to 4 minutes after I click on parent folder. Sometimes, merely opening Windows Task Manager seems to kick-start it, sometimes not. Started doing this several months ago; didn't used to do this. I uninstalled and downloaded a "fresh copy" to no avail.

No, I have not tried to rename xnview.ini. What would be the purpose of doing that, and how do I do it?

How do I reset settings? It is still doing this... over a year later. And, additionally, the program REFUSES to close when I try to close it! There is obviously something wrong with your program.

Try to reset settings by renaming your xnview.ini
