opening photos

I have photos saved both on a disc and on my computer itself. For no apparent reason it has started to refuse to open them. The message is "Paint cannot read this file. This is not a valid bitmap file, or its format is not currently supported" Any clues please (in words of less than one syllable please!!.

Go into Explorer, click a photo you want to open, hold the shift key down and right click the selected file choose open with, Then choose the program you want to open the photo with other than Paint you can tick the box so that it will always open with that program. Paint as limited file formats for opening Photo's so you need a different photo editing program to do it really
