Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer

21 Dec 2011   #1

32 bit Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows Photo Viewer

Eventhough I have MS Office Picture Manager set as the default to open JPG files, when I click on the images file it opens with PhotoViewer (which would be OK if I was able to do even the more basic of editing.)

I have not come across an instance of ever wanting to chose PhotoViewer for anything image related. Is there a way to remove it entirely?
