All of sudden, now I canít open to edit any pic files in My Pictures. When I try, I get: ďThis file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folders Options control panel.Ē Iíve never had a problem before now, nor made any changes to anything Iím aware of. No problems with any other files. I've gone to Folder Options, chosen JPG as default change (it was already chosen), and checked Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as default. Nothing changed... Bleeping computer!
My Errors files has a repeated "Application Error" last dated 6/11/11: Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2900.5512, faulting module explorer.exe, version 6.0.2900.5512, fault address 0x000094a6. That's all that's there; if it helps.

I would try a repair install of XP, using a disk that reflects the current SP which is installed...or run the sfc /scannow command, again with a disk reflecting same SP as the O/S installed.

I would suspect file damage.

Alternately...I would try running the chkdsk /r command.

Did you change the settings for both the .jpg and .jpeg extensions?

As a test/workaround...you could download/install Irfanview and change the program affiliated for all graphic files.

Thanks for replying, Louis.

I don't have an XP disk.
Also, I'm otherwise not very computer savy to fully understand what you've instructed.
But, yes, I changed both jpg and jpeg as part of my first attempt, without success.
Can you help me, please?

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.

Type Y in new screen and hit Enter.

Reboot the system...the chkdsk /r will begin and complete...then boot into Windows.

Nothing changed.
Now I've discovered the same thing happens when I try to open any of My Documents files other than Works files.
So I can't open any of my pics, regardless of file type; and I can't open any of My Documents other than Works, not Word, Rich Text, etc. All I get is: ďThis file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folders Options control panel.Ē

On another note, I can open all my files I've previously written onto CDs, but now I can't write/copy anything to any CD-RW or CD-R, not even unused new ones.

...I'm going insane
