✔ Best Answer
Instead of double-clicking the picture to open it, try single right-clicking it and select 'open with' and then 'choose default program'. In the subsequent window, select 'windows photo viewer' and make sure there's a tick in the 'always use the selected program.......' box. Click 'ok', the picture should then be displayed using Windows photo viewer and, more importantly, if you double click any other jpg it should do the same.

If Johnr's solution works for you, your issue is an indication of malware infection.

Make sure your AV/Antimalware software is up to date and scanning your pc.
