Sounds like one of two problems.
Either the image was created as a different type, then had the extension changed; or
Photo viewer is corrupted, and needs to be reinstalled.

Actually, Im not sure how to reinstall it itself, as its a windows component...
I know in XP it was under add/remove programs>windows components
But 7 is a bit different with that now...

One more thing I'd like you to try: Open the file in notepad.exe
You'll get a bunch of unreadable text. Ignore all that. Just copy and paste line 1 only.

Well actualyl I jsut wasted my time and opend them all on cs4 and re-saved them. So now i can open them.
Just now there another problem... I cant rotate some pictures, it says they are being used or the file is read only. and its only affecting about 5 pics and i litteraly dont have them opened and i tried restarting same error.
