Windows 7: jpg vs JPG

So are you saying that if you rename the extension to a lower case jpg it still won't open?
rename a jpg that works to JPG and see if you get the same error.
It is possible that people sending the JPG's are sending corrupted files.

Yes, but it only gave me the option of Yes once, not twice then okay.

It still does not give me the option of open with.

It will not let me rename them. My wife can open them perfectly fine on her machine. Also seems odd that files I could open three days ago I can no longer open. The file on my computer was not corrupted now it is? I did narrow it down to the majority of the files with JPG in all caps are coming from two guys with iphones. That being said, my wife can open them I could before. A buddy mentioned something about jpg.abc, but that is not showing up and I changed the settings to show all file extensions.

I have also tried to open the jpgs in Windows Photo Viewer and Picture Viewer. It still gives me the same message.

It could be that the registry entries for that extension is/are corrupt. Try downloading the following from Default File Type Associations - Restore

jpe, jpeg, jpg

Note that you will need to extract them and merge them into the registry from within an administrative account.

Dwarf,

Sorry, still no go. Rebooted as well after the merge.

Can you open ordinary jpg files, just not the ones originating from the iPhones?

Not sure. I will need to look through all of my email with attachments and will get back to you. I just happened to notice the ones that had the JPG in caps that I could not open were typically from iPhones. Pretty much everyone else's came through in small case and opened right up.

Just found one in all caps that was not from an iphone and it opened right up. That being said, I think I have attachments that have been sent by the same iphone that are not all caps and I can open them. Older all caps ones that I opens Tuesday I can no longer open. Really has me lost. If I could get the "open with" to pop up I think I could get it fixed, but after three attempts I am not sure that is ever going to be in my cards.

maybe not to the OS, but I know without doubt that to a web-host, specifically tripod, it matters.
