Specs: Windows 7, v140
so my computer had a virus and all my icons don't work they pop up as large view of picture then it says Windows Photo viewer can't open this picture because either Photo viewer doesn't support this file format, or you don't have the latest updates to photo viewer.

Go here (if you can), and use the EXE fix:

If this fixes the reported problem then you still need to check for viruses (which often cause this). MalwareBytes freebie would be a good start:

Hi,

Did you try doing System Restore? If no and if this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest try restoring your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

For System Restore steps, you can refer to the URL mentioned: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/...

Kindly revert and let us know the status.

Thanks & Regards
Debbie B
