Windows Issue

My Win98 has been having issues lately. I can't open .jpg files at all. I've never even heard of this happening. Any Ideas?

Question

What is it doing when you try and open a .jpg? Have you installed any new software recently?

Only Quicktime, but it started before that. It just freezes the window that tries to open it. When I use explorer, it freezes the window, then I use the Open menu in IExplorer, it freezes the Explorer window, I haven't tried any other ways of opening it. Other windows seem unaffected.

Try redefining the opening rules?

Start > Settings > Folder Options

Tab: File Types

Scroll down to JPEG Image, and check out the details.

The options should show:

Content Type (MIME) image/jpeg
Default extention .jpg
Actions:
open
print
printto

Edit the open rule so that the path points towards the program you want to use. The MS Photo Editor should be at:

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

Yeah, what he said. Sounds like the same thing I was thinking.

Those settings are kosher.

Any other ideas?

Alright, correction, the images come up, it just takes like 60 seconds. The comp is freshly restarted, and I have lots of free RAM.
