    Blank tiles


    I've suddenly lost the graphic on most of my tiles. I now have coloured squares with no indication of what they are. Can't figure out what I've done.......

    Go to Control Panel, Programs, Default Programs, set Program Access and Computer defaults, select Microsoft windows as default.
    Hope this helps.
