and you should see an option to "open with". Select either MS Paint, it's photo viewer or whatever opened the files in the past. If you can view the image as you wish, you need to associate that program with the .jpg file extension.
About two weeks ago any Microsoft Files, .jpg stopped opening. When I click on the Microsoft word or excel it comes up with this error. ".doc is locked for editing "by another user". Then it gives me 3 options. 1. Open a read only document. 2. Create a local copy and merge your changes later. 3.Receive notification when the original copy is available.
ANY .jpg on my desktop won't open when I double click them. If I move the .jpg into a desktop folder they will open up. When I right click on my jpg's they show and show open with it shows Windows Photo Viewer which is what it should be. I have run my Security Essentials, Malaware Bytes, Spybot and other programs and they show nothing wrong.
I tried using System Restore yet the two dates from a week ago didn't work and the only other dates were today.
This also happens when I download a new .jpg or Microsoft document to my desktop from my email. If I download it to another location such as my documents it's OK. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
