    I was changing the look of my icons
    ([going to a folder]>tools>folder options>file types), and I changed the JPG file icon. Now, something must have happened, because whenever I try to open a JPG file, it opens Paint Shop Pro, and it says "Unable to open File." When I open PSP manually, then click file>open, it will work, but not when I just double click in a folder. Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

    not sure how to fix the PSP problem

    but make sure your open says this if you want it to open like the use to with the xp default

    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\PhotoEd\PHOTOED.EXE" "%1"

    click use DDE

    Hmm, for some reason, there weren't quotes around the %1. I don't know if you need them, but it worked. Thanks :)
