You need to have a program to open them with. Do you have Windows Office?

If you don't you can download OpenOffice http://download.openoffice.org/
Be sure to un-check any extras they have bundled with it ...like Yahoo Browser, etc.

.jpeg should open with any photo program like Photo gallery, Faststone picture viewer and alike
.pdf should open with Adobe or Foxit

I suggest you have a look into your file associations table and check which programs are associated with these filetypes. If necessary, change it.

If that is not something you want to do, download these 2 programs and they will automatically set the associations:

Foxit Reader - Download

FastStone Image Viewer - Powerful and Intuitive Photo Viewer, Editor and Batch Converter
