    Opening .jpg files (2003)

    After my computer crashed, I reformatted, reinstalled Outlook 2003, etc. Now when I open a .jpg file that is attached in my e-mail, the image opens automatically in ArcSoft Photo Impression. I can't figure out how that happened nor can I figure out how to just open the image in my mail. Any ideas?

    Your associations have got munged:

    Find a .jpg on your hard disk.
    Right_click and select "Open with...".
    Click on "Choose programme..."
    Find the application you want to use, and make sure you select the "Always use this program" option.

    This is a problem with MOST graphic programs, the last one installed will "Hi-Jack" the associations.
    Some of the NEWER versions have gotten smarter but the users have not. The newer programs will ask if you want to change the associations and most users will just click away.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
