Have you tried right-clicking on the image and selecting the programme you want to use to open the picture via "Open With" e.g Windows Fax and Picture Viewer? You can also opt to check the tick box via Choose Program... to ensure the same application opens with the image.This should give you more control on which applications to use.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like your opening files types that adobe has now taken control of.

Luckly you can change these back goto my computer then tools / folder options / file types tab

You now see a list of file types on your computer scroll down the list until you see the file type you want to change and click on it and then down the bottom of the tab you wil see an opens with and then a change button. Click the change button and then point to the program you want to open the files with.

Alternatively right click on the file and choose open with then click choose program find the program you want to open it with and make sure the box always use the selcted programs to open these files.
