Rightclick one jpg file and choose "Open With" / "Choose Program...".
Select the program, you'd like to open jpg with, set the checkbox for "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and click ok.

AndyR, If you're still having the problem go to the link below and download the free "imgeditor.zip" utility. Instructions for using it are on the page. It will reassociate your jpg files with the default Windows Picture and Fax Viewer.

AndyR, both have given you good advice. Just FYI, I use a proggie called 'Irfanview' (free @ http://www.irfanview.com) to open ANY graphics and never had any problems with it. IMHO, simply the best I've ever seen.
