    In Control Panel, open Default Programs. Click on " Associate a file....................." Find .jpg. If Current Program is not Infraview, change it. I suggest doing the same with .jpe and .jpeg.

    It's been a while since I've used irfanview but what you're probably running into is a file association issue. Go to any jpg file, right click on it, choose properties from the menu. Then where it says "open with," check to see if it's irfanview. If not then click "change," and a list of options will appear. From the list choose irfanview and click Okay. That should fix it.

    I wonder if the advice we gave the judy85085 helped resolve the problem.
