How do you know if a jpg has a trojan or virus attached to it? What about a jpg i created on my virus-free computer using my printer to scan and save it, and sent to a friend, and they say my attachment gave them a virus. Can this happen? If my computer is clean, how can a virus get attached to the jpg?

Very unlikely. Trojans and viruses tend to be installed in executable files.(.exe)

If you scanned a photo,saved it on your computer and emailed it to a friend and your computer is 'clean' ! Then NO.

Your friend has to look elsewhere for any infection they may have.
