OK, I found out a solution to this problem that a handful of users have asked in the past.
So do you still want Paint to be the default editor or do you want some other program? Either way, I want you to just replace that program (see link) with the one you want. Take a look at this site for a registry edit. As usual, back up your registry first before attempting to make any changes.

Didn't find much except for one thing. Go to this site and look at the first post. Do what's mentioned there. Now try editing the picture by clicking the Close Picture Viewer and open Edit button.
Strange though since you said it works if you right click on the image and go to Edit.

OK, I did a quick search and found this free program. See if it has the feature to look up the current shortcut keys you have assigned. That should help you locate ctrl+E.

Thanks for the info. I checked the registry and ms paint is the default. When I click the edit button at the bottom of the screen in widows picture viewer, picture viewer closes but paint does not open. If I right click in picture viewer from the context menu I can select edit and picture viewer closes and the photo opens in paint. Some how clicking the screen does not complete process. Any Ideas? TIA
Someone already succeeded to solve this exactly same problem without reparing windows XP?
Thanks a lot

my default picture viewer is windows pictre and fax viewer. i like their layout.
when i click on the icon that says - closes this program and opens the image for editing, the picture closes instead of opening up in Paint for editing.
i tried the file associations thing for xp does not work.
i think the issue is my ctrl E.
when i rightclick and choose edit, that works.
the ctrl E does not work though.
HELP. this is really frustrating.
