When I open Picasa I get the following error message: 

 

CBlockFile::OpenBlock err=5, previews_7.db     and an OK button. 

 

I click OK button and it then allow Picasa to load.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Joe

That’s a new one.

Do all your pictures look OK once you’re in?  One normal process is to rebuild the Picasa database, but if your database was corrupt you usually see some other effects.

Here are the official instructions for rebuilding your database
