unable to open jpeg's

  johnnyrocker 11:59 24 Apr 2006

a relation of mine has mailed me with a problem which i have not been able to help with, so i thought i would seek the wisdom of some experts.
she has a laptop (xp home) and a desktop (xp pro). on the desktop she is unable to open jpeg attachments, gets the error something like (does not have a prog associated)
she is able to open the same jpeg on laptop no probs,
went through all the media boxes i/net options/advanced.
any ideas folks?

Proably just lost the association. Without anything else installed they should default to the picture and fax viewer. I would install IrfanView and set the .jpg association to it. Should be alright then.

Try -
Right click on the jpg file
Choose "open with" and from the list pick the progam you want from the dropdown list.

thanks for that, will she still be able to do that when it is at attachment stage?

Yes, should work just the same with attachments.

bearing in mind the attachment cannot be opened with a left click on one of the machines?
