Windows 7 Photo Viewer Disappered

For some reason my photos no longer open in Windows 7 photo Viewer they open it Paint how can I go about resetting Photo Viewer as a default applications to open images. When I can't even find its executable?

Thanks in Advance.

I think that the easiest way would be to do a system restore. If no other solutions come by, SR is your best bet. It will work.

Hello SyntheCypher, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can go to Default Programs, then set Windows Photo Viewer to be the default program with all of it's associations set to it as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

In this case, this is definitely the better option. No need for a system restore for something this easy.
