Please don't post in multiple forums. Several people have come to the same conclusion, so try what several of us have informed you to do. If you are still having problems, more details need to be given. Example: the way you are explaining it, you're clicking on jpeg, gif files, etc, and they are opening in notepad. This only happens when you click, right? If the pictures are opening like this automatically when you are viewing a Web page, that's a totally different issue.
