ThumbsPlus 8 SP1 Build 3535

Problem
In my fixes to better support the Windows Icon file type, I broadened the files which are recognized as .ICO. This is often preventing the opening of files with no extension or non-standard extensions.

Solution
This will be fixed in a future patch or update. In the meantime, be sure to save files with proper extensions.

More Information
Unlike Explorer, ThumbsPlus never hides the extension, as it is an integral part of the name on Windows. This will also make them more compatible with other programs, which usually won't load them with improper extensions anyway.
