Hi scirocco85...

Sounds like you need to set the file association for JPG's. Open Control Panel and double click on "Folder Options". Under the "File Types" tab, scroll down the list in the top box and select JPG, in the bottom box, click the "Change" button, choose the application you want to open these files by default, and "Apply" the change. Do the same for JPEG and any other image file type you want to open using that application.
