    Perhaps it would be helpful to see your extension and file type associations.
    You could open an Administrator Command Prompt and issue:

    assoc .jpg

    This will show your current association of extension .jpg with specific file
    type. For example on my computer (Vista Business) I get:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002]
    Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\>assoc .jpg
    ..jpg=jpegfile

    So in my case .jpg extension is associated with file type of jpegfile/


    Next see which command opens specific file type:

    ftype filetype

    where filetype is obtained from output of previous assoc command. For example on
    my computer I get:

    C:\>ftype jpegfile
    jpegfile=%SystemRoot%\System32\rundll32.exe "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Photo
    Gallery\PhotoViewer.dll", ImageView_Fullscreen %1

    In my case files of type jpegfile are opened with a/m command which invokes
    Microsoft Photoviewer applications and passes option and filename to be opened.


    Finally - you may want consider uninstalling completely and reinstalling
    application which opens files of type jpegfile.


    Hope it helps,

    Program? I make a folder on the desktop. I name it something like SuesPics.
    I add Sue's images as JPGs. It's a Folder, not a program. I open the
    folder and right click on a picture and get the error: "This Application
    isn't responding." If this was W98 it would be about like the
    BlueScreenOfDeath we all dreaded. But Vista of course just blinks, and
    everything comes back in a 15 seconds or so. I need to resolve this
    desperately since I work with JPGs all the time.

    The business version must be very different. See above.

    The above is not on VistaHomePremium either.

    My JPGs open in WindowsPhotoGallery when they don't lock up the folder, then
    the entire PC. How can I fix this?

    How do I uninstall and reinstall WindowsPhotoGallery?

    You did type cmd in the Start search box and open the Command Prompt window
    (a black screen), right? I have Vista Home Basic and assoc comes up fine....

    I'm getting confused here... I thought you were using Photofiltre as your
    image viewer, not Windows Photo Gallery, or was Photofiltre the program you
    WANTED to use but the right-click function wasn't working? Did you try
    reinstalling Photofiltre?

    So, the .JPG files open fine when you double click and they open in Windows
    Photo Gallery. It just messes up when you try a right-click "Send To"
    function?

    The fact that your PC locks up when you try opening a .jpg means that there
    is an *association* for the .jpg file type, and it's probably set to the
    wrong application. Can you right-click and bring up the menu without it
    locking up? If so, click on a .jpg file, right-click and select Open With
    and see what program is set to "open" the .jpg. Please post your results.
