When you say "Pictures" do you mean jpeg images? If so right click on any jpeg and choose "Open With" and choose "Default Viewer" If your viewer of choice is not in the list choose "Browse" and navigate to the program you want. Check the box that reads "Always open with this program" a press OK

Yes, there is an option called "Import pictures and videos using windows" under Control panel>autoplay>pictures.

Try out this, its for vista but should work (or not work) equally for Windows 7.

thanks for your advice but i do not think it'll work since windows photo viewer has no .exe in it's own folder...

here is example when the option is present (taken from microsoft page)
Working with digital pictures
so how come it is not present in windows 7 ?
microsoft posted "wrong" photo?
Any other idea/tweak to fix the fault issue please?

1) Dude, you want a photoviewer option in Autoplay, it isnt there.

2) Use a free image viewer like Faststone in conjunction with the trick I posted earlier.

Thats about all I can think of.
