Have you installed a photo or graphic program that opens a jpg file. Is it associated with jpg files. Try opening the graphics program first and opening the file by using the File/Open from the menu bar.
There are a few thing you can try. First make sure that the file is
not on a location that is currently accessible, like a network location or an external drive that is not currently plugged in the PC. You should check if you antivirus software is blocking the file for some reasons. If you are sure that the file is safe, you can try to temporarily disable the security software and then try to open the file. You can try to take ownership of the file: Right-click on the file or folder and go to Properties Windows. Under Properties click on “Security” Tab, click on “Advanced” and check both the Permissions and Owner tabs. Make sure the account you are using has permission to view the file, if that isn't enough you can try changing the owner as well.
Techpumpkin_WD, - a typo, you mean "First make sure that the file is not on a location that is currently inaccessible, like a network location or an external drive that is not currently plugged in the PC."
