I'm not familiar with it but try going to start and set program access and defaults and choose microsoft windows or can you right click it and choose the program you'd like to open it?

If XP is your OS,

Open Windows Explorer, Navigate to a directory with a Picture type you want to view (i.e. .jpg),

Right Click the picture, Open With, Choose Program...,

Select 'Windows Picture and Fax Viewer',

Tick 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'

Click OK, Then do the same with other Picture types, If Needed.

Can't remember if Vista is the same, If it aint I will try it later on, Time for Bed (Boing).
