- “[MPREXE caused an invalid page fault in module Kernel32.dll|http://support.microsoft.com/kb/151708/]”
- Google’s [Picasa|http://picasa.google.com/] photo application. Two more options mentioned for photo management are [iMatch|http://www.photools.com/] and [iView MediaPro|http://www.iview-multimedia.com/]. [Lyle|http://geekspeak/profiles/Lyle/] uses iMatch for photo management on Windows, but really likes iView, and might be switching. The only issue with iView is it’s poor keyword/category assignment support; iMatch has a great interface for assigning keywords, and it is very scriptable, which is disirable for a geek like Lyle.
