My computer has Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601). 2.50 gigahertz AMD A8-3820 APU with Radeon HD Graphics

512 kilobyte primary memory cache
4096 kilobyte secondary memory cache
64-bit ready
Multi-core (4 total)
Not hyper-threaded

 

It started a couple of weeks ago.  Whenever I double click any jpeg photo it spins for about 3 seconds and stops.  I can't remember doing anything to my computer or adding any programs which would cause this.  I downloaded Irfanview as this is the only way which I can open jpegs at the moment. Right now I just right click and open with Irfanview.Windows Photo Viewer is still my default viewer and would like to fix this. 

 

What can I do to fix this problem with Windows Photo Viewer?

 

Thanks,

John

As well as setting Photo Viewer as default have you also checked that .jpgs are set to be opened by it in default file associations?

 

 

(when you do Control Panel, Default programs, look for Associate a file type with a program)

 

If the jpeg entry is corrupted in the registry it can be restored by downloading it from here (just do the jpeg one)

Thanks for your help.  I checked on the associate file type and it was set to Windows Photo Viewer.  I then clicked on the link your provided and downloaded the file, installed and rebooted my computer per the instructions.  I was very hopeful yet it didn't work.  Do you have any other possible fixes?

 

Thanks,

John
