    almost sounds like the file extension got wonky
    try renaming a pic to whatever.jpg (or whatever format it originally was in) and see if it's viewable

    normally an adobe product or a pdf maker software would be involved - if you don't have/use those, then look for a different explanation

    navigate to one of the files...

    Hold the shift key and right click...choose "open with" then select the program you want to use...put a dot in the box ..."always use this program" and click ok
