Do you get an error message? If so, please post full message text.

Please provide as much information regarding what actually happens when you try to open a jpg file.

Can you open the JPG or JPEG from inside Photo Editor?

Check to be sure graphics filters are completely installed. Go to Add/Remove Programs, Microsoft Office, Change, Add or Remove Features, open Office Shared Features, Converters and Filter. It it's not already solid white, click it and choose Run all from my computer. Reboot and try to open a jpg or jpeg file again.

Did that help?

I use XnView - it's freeware graphics utility. You can download it here.

So did you reinstall just Photo Editor or Office? If just PE, then try Office.
