Whenever I double click on a picture in my pics folder it refuses to open it
up to a bigger window that shows the pic enlarged. I also cant use any of
them as a picture for my desktop..
This is what the window that pops up states.....

" THIS FILE DOES NOT HAVE A PROGRAM ASSOCIATED WITH IT FOR PERFORMING THIS
ACTION. CREATE A ASSOCIATION IN THE FOLDER OPTIONS CONTROL PANEL." Then
it shows the OK button to click on.
What can I do so I can view my photos like I use to???

>> reset to defaulyt

Did you select JPG, and click the "Repair associations" button ?

Try this from Start, Run:

CMD /C ASSOC .jpg=jpegfile

Do you have the same problem viewing other file types?
