    I just received a computer from a friend and the jpegs are not associated with anything so I can look at them. Should I download something as a viewer or can I associate them to something? Thanks for the help.

    If you've got no program for viewing them, you can view them from within an Internet Explorer window - after you associate them with Internet Explorer.

    Double-click My Computer, click View - Folder Options, then click File Types(tab). Under Registered File Types, scroll down to JPEG Image, then click on and highlight it. Click Edit, click on and highlight Open, click Edit, then click Browse. Browse to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe, then click Open. This file path will then appear in the Application Used To Perform Action bar. Enter a space, quote, percent, one, quote after exe" so it looks like this:

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe" "%1"

    Click Okay - Close. It should now say Opens with - - Iexplore.

    Well, I tried your suggestion and it didnt work. Every image file is still a piece of paper with the windows logo on it. When I double-click it still says there is nothing associated to it.

    Windows 98SE. Here is the wierd thing though. I just downloaded a picture viewer and it defaulted all pics to that viewer. Now when I go back to file types/jpeg it still shows all jpegs are associated with IE not this pic viewer. I am sooooo confused now.

    QuickTime 6.5.2 has a PictureViewer applet for viewing still images(which I like to use), but some people don't like it.
