    What program are you using to open the files? I found liv.exe to be a shareware program. If that's what you were using, did you uninstall it?

    You probably have MS paint or another imaging software on your machine that you could use.

    Hold down the shift key and right click on a jpg and choose "Open with" and pick a program from the list of applications.

    If you want to use BlackMagic Home Edition go to the shareware site, download it and reinstall the program. You probably got the trial version and it has expired.

    You can search for liv.exe and see if it's there. Did you buy the shareware version or just using the trial version?

    I did search for it and it is not there. I didn't buy any Shareware. I was trying to open up a picture that i got in my email. I use to be able to now i can't.

    I suggest you download and install a freeware picture viewer. You can use XnView or Irfanview that i both like. You can find these and more on my Windows 95 page in the Software -> Imaging/multimedia section.

    Try using a different program as I suggested above. You probably have imagevue, also known as kodakimg.exe, that will open jpg files.
