    I just bought a sony vaio with windows xp, I am new to the xp and this may be normal, but I sure hope not.
    When I download a picture file, I can not open it in any program,
    and can not view it whether it be a jpeg bitmap or a gif...windows xp just does not recognize it. Hope that someone can help

    try downloading acdsee. Thats what I use...but with winXP, you should be able to view the pics on its default viewer...wierd.

    try right clicking on the file then selecting "open with", the select "other", find the program that you want and tick the "always open with this program" box, then press OK
