I can't open my .jpg files anymore

Dell INSPIRON 2200

Specs: Windows XP
I recently was trying to clean up my computer
and delete a bunch of files and programs I
wasn't using so it would maybe run better. I
decided to delete photoshop, (just a trial
version) and ever since I haven't been able to
view any of my .jpg pictures, even with
Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. I'm quite
sure I didn't delete the Picture/Fax viewer and
thats how I used to always view my pictures.
Help please????

How to change file associations in Windows XP


To change the program that opens a certain file type:
Right click a file and select Open with. It should show a few files that you can use to open that particular type. There will also be a `Choose Program' option. Clicking on it will give you another screen where you can select the program that you want to open it. Notice the `Always use the selected program to open this kind of file' option in the bottom left of the window.

Try #80 on the left at http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_...

Click Start>Run and copy & paste or type in:

regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll

Click OK.

Note that the spacing is important.

If the above doesn't work try the small, Free "Imgeditor" program at the link below. Just use the "Reset image editor settings to Windows XP defaults" button.


More info on the program at this link.
