Cant open Win photoviewer

I cant open pictures or photos in Windows photoviewer, so I downloaded IrFanview 64 picture viewer, it works except that I cant zoom in on anything? I took a screenshot of the message I got about downloading a file from the website but that didnt work out for some reason? Is there a way to get Windows photoviewer going again?

It looks like it tried to open the file "VSX-522-k_OperatingInstructions070312.pdf", in Irfanview.

Uninstall Irfanview. Then try Windows Photoviewer again, and tell us what happens when you try.

Well thats strange! I uninstalled Irfanview and Win photoviewer works great now? I can zoom in and it opens JPEG files, etc.. I hope it doesnt decide to stuff up again. lol :)
