Well you need to high light the picture icon nd hold down the shift key and then right click on one of the pics. Select open with, then choose which program you want to use to open the image with.

Thank you very much for your responce but I guess I did not explain problem well.When attempting to open there is no open option,top says--scan with nort.-send to-cut-copy-ect. Icon is not paint brush-is white background windows logo, JPG file? The pics. used to have a paint icon and opened easy but changed by itself oneday to an empty winlogo icon. You know those empty winlogo that appear untill win. recognizes file and icon changes, like on startup
When I attempt to (save as) the pics. properties says JPG file-xxxbytes ect. paint logo icon upper left. After save properties say JPG file-xxxbytes ect. empty winlogo icon upper left with no open or openwith option-when shift engaged as you suggested options say-scanwith-send to- cut-copy ect. I hope this gives a better idea of problem. THANK YOU for all your help.

What happens if you go into explorer and right click on one of the images?
(assuming you haven't done it through explorer. I'm just grasping at straws now. I'm not sure if it's the way you are explaining it or the way I'm reading it)

Try this free download: OpenExpert




"To choose the applications for the given file type, just select "Configure Applications" and you're provided with a dialog where you can easily add your applications to the menu." - says the website.

I haven't tried it, but I've read it's fast, free, and doesn't add an icon in your systray. I have found no negative comments about it.

Alternatively, Microsoft has a registry edit to add "Open with..." to the right click context menu. If you are familiar with editing your registry I'll be glad to post it, just give the word.

Yup, it's as free as air, and not only is it free, it's free for personal use only so I'm gonna have to charge you some outrageous fee just because you asked :D

Still FREE for nontronic, though.

I can't help with specific computer problem that you have but this program is excellent for organizing photos (jpeg etc) If you want to find all the pics on your computer then this will do it.

Here's a crazy idea, but try using the "Send to..." option and select "Mail recipient" and email one of the offending files to a friend (or, try to upload it on the board) to see if anything will open the attachment, or to see if it arrives as a valid jpg file, or see if it arrives...just an idea...
