    try My Computer> Tools (from drop down menu)>Folder Options>File Types

    reassociate your .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .bmp, .bmp files with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (set them to open with the viewer)

    see if that does it

    Windows Picture and Fax Viewer

    If for some reason it's not already in the list, you can force the association by following these steps, still in Windows Explorer:

    * On the Tools menu, click Folder Options...
    * Click on the File Types tab.
    * Scroll down to the extension you care about, for example "JPG".
    * Press the Restore button, if it exists.
    * Press the Advanced button.
    * Click on the Open action.
    * Click on Edit...
    * In the Application used to perform action: enter C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen %1. Where "C:\WINDOWS" is the directory containing your Windows installation.
    * Press OK

    You'll want to repeat that for every extension (GIF, JPG, JPEG, etc.) for which you want to change the behavior.

    Update: Another approach to re-installing Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is to click on Start, Run... and type in:

    regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll
    I've never seen this problem before. I have seen a problem on a few boxes after removal of AOL, but re-assocaiting the pics w/ pic and fax viewer has always fixed it.
