To sum it up, after installing adobe image ready, it set itself to open every .png , .jpg and .gif file automatically with it. I was annoyed with this and therefore just decided to uninstall it. All three of the file types ended up needing file association helper to choose the new program that would open up the file. This worked perfectly fine for .png and .gif , however when it came to .jpg there was a issue. In the picture bellow it shows how I cannot tick to always open the file using a certain application, which to me is quite annoying as i do not want to go through file association helper every time to open one image. I also have been through the control panel method to try change it however that already said it was using Windows Photo Gallery to open the file when it isn't. Anyone know how to help?  :huh:

Hi lunaeclair :)

Can you download and run the two Registry edit below? These will reset the program association for .jpg and .jpeg files. Once done, restart your computer and see if it worked.
