right click on one of the pictures, then click properties then click the change button on the same line as open with, then once you select what you want to open it with there should be a check box down below that sais open all files of type with this program check the box. That should allow you to open them all with whatever program you would like.

When you right click on the picture and go into, "Open with...", there should be a little checkmark box under the list of all programs you can use to open it up with. Click on that little box that says, "Always use this selected program for this kind of file." Do that for a JPEG, GIF, and BMP image (using the Windows Pictures and Fax Viewer program).

i did it but now they dont open at all, its acting like a program i used a while ago to lock the folder and it prevents u from opening things, could that be the problem? i'll start looking for it and see if i can download it again

Ok, firstly, why would you want to decrypt pictures...thats just stupid..

Copy the pics to a disc and open them on another computer...what happens then?

Was it Folder Guardian ? if not i can't see why the above posts would'nt work for you. try doing the same as above only open with windows explorer. if it won't open with that then you are locked out of that program.

You said earlier that you deleted the program to encrypt the folder with, so did you delete the program or un-install it ?
