Windows 7: Windows Photo Viewer can't open .jpg

Windows Photo Viewer can't open .jpg

Since few days ago there are no thumbnails on my newly downloaded .jpg's. I'm using Opera 16.0 Internet browser. When I open my pictures in Windows Photo Viewer it says:

"Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because either Photo Viewer doesn't support this file format, or you don't have the latest updates to Photo Viewer"

I wasn't installing any programs lately or messing around with drivers, and I even tried opening these pictures with Microsoft Office Picture Manager and it just shows broken picture icon.

I am doing a lot of graphic design on my notebook so this is very important to me. And if anyone have any idea on how to fix this and what is causing this problem, please help.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Are you sure they are being saved as a .jpg?

Have you tried a different browser(IE, Firefox)?

Post a link to one of the images you are having trouble with and I will look at it.

I'm sure it's saving in .jpg
I have just tried saving one of the pictures in IE and its OK. So the problem is probably in Opera browser...

Yeah sounds like Opera, you may want to uninstall it and reinstall it to see if it corrects your problem.
