I can't seem to open a lot of the images that I want to. When I double-click on an icon for an image that I want to open I get an error message, and the image won't open. I've tried opening it with Paint, Gimp, IE, and Irfanview. The images that I'm having trouble with were received in email from a few groups I belong to. Click this link to see the message that I'm getting when trying to open with Gimp:http://i1.tinypic.com/zvbdwp.jpg
Click this link to see the message I get when trying to open with Irfanview (Notice that the file is JPEG here):http://i3.tinypic.com/zvbgn9.jpg
This next image is also from Irfanview. It appears after I click 'Yes' in the message that appears the first time I try to open it in Irfanview which I showed in the image before this one. (Notice that the file has been changed to art here by Irfanview, but it still won't open.)http://i1.tinypic.com/zvbg3m.jpg

Any ideas on what I can do? Also, can someone explain the reason some people save images in JPEG, BMP, or ART? I think I was already told the when they are save GIF it's because they are animated, though I've received a bunch that were not animated yet were still sent as a GIF file.
Thanks in advance for your help! Have a wonderful day!
