Hi there!
Well the problem started when I got a brand new Digital Camera. I installed the disk that it came with, but when I did, it changed all of my pictures' formats to Quicktime. I can still see the pictures, it is just that with Quicktime, it takes so long to see them. I programmed Quicktime so that it would not take any picture formats such as .jpg or .gif (I think) & it worked, but now, Windows Picture & Fax Viewer will not open the pictures. I changed the properties so that it would open with Windows Picture & Fax Viewer, yet when I double-click on any picture, I doesn't opens. I would shure appreciate any help that anyone may bring. Thanks & see ya!

Did you change the file associations using the following method?

1. Open Windows Explorer, and click Tools --> Folder Options --> File Types.

2. Under Registered file types:, scroll down the list and find the following:


3. For each file type that is not associated with the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (specified under Details for 'file type' extension), click Change and choose the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer option from the list. Make sure there is a check in the box next to Always use the selected program to open this kind of file
, and click OK.

This should do the trick.
