My computer has been hijacked by Corel Instant Viewer. I can no longer use my preferred image viewer, I cannot delete this program and cannot even find it anywhere in my file system.

Try using Revo Uninstaller. Even if it can't uninstall the application normally, it will force it to uninstall by wiping out all traces of its presence from the system.

After this procedure, Corel Instant Viewer will be removed. To assign a new viewer, right click the file you want to open, but keep Shift pressed then use Open With. Select the new software from the list and the next time you'll open the same format, your new software will open instead.

Back again, Stephen. However, I got fed up enough that I uninstalled PaintShop Pro completely.  That also got rid of Corel Instant Viewer and allowed me to re-set Image Eye as my default image viewer.

Then reinstalled PaintShop Pro, and lo and behold, it did not reinstall Corel Instant Viewer! I don't understand how, but I got what I wanted and I'll settle for that!

Thanks for helping....

Thanks Stephen. Revo Uninstaller is one of the first uninstallers that I tried. As in the Control Panel Programs and Features, Corel Instant Viewer does not come up in the list of programs. A user who had the same problem said that a line in the registry can be changed to make the program visible and allow it to be deleted, but the registry layout that he described to find that line was different from mine and did not work for me. I don't fool in the registry without knowing exactly what to do.
