RE: file associations

1) which version of windows are you running?
2) can you try to explain in more detail what you're trying to do - and what is going wrong?

RE: file associations

this may not be a file association problem, it could easily be a security settings issue within the mail program
What happens when you try to view a photo that has been e-mailed to you? what error message do you get?

And do you get a similar message when you go to your Pictures folder and double click a picture?

RE: file associations

OK, assuming it is just a file extension problem, then you need to download, unzip and then run this registry fix
However I suspect there is more to it than just that: I suspect some missing software may have to be reinstalled (thats the reason for Alan's question)
