    Are all your pictures stored under one main folder? If so, it should be easy to change the file securities to give you access. This article will walk you through the process.

    Then I'm guessing you didn't carry out the procedure properly.

    Okay, the path I outlined is the way to handle this precise issue. I don't have other options.

    What are the permissions on the pictures folder - if that is where the images are stored
    Navigate to the folder using explorer and then right click the folder click properties and then click the security tab
    click on your user account and check which boxes are check ticked
    If the pictures are not all in the same folder make the check on the folder where the ones that will not open in Windows Photo Viewer are
    Will those pictures - jpegs - open with Paint or other suitable app

    The problem has arisen because the images were granted permissions from the original installation of Home and now you have installed Professional
    I guess that the images are not on the current OS partition.
