Hello , Windows Picture & Fax Viewer is not a an EXE file but is contained inside an MS DLL file. This is the path to it: rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\System32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen %1

There don't seem to be any .exe exact program files for it! You can open a blank Viewer by running

"rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\shimgvw. dll, ImageView_Fullscreen" (remove space before dll)
in Start>Run. Drag and drop in an image and it'll show it.
You can create a short-cut of this on the desktop as well if you wish. Right-click desktop then new>shortcut paste in above, and it'll work the same way.

This means that it doesn't have its own program as this is how microsoft has designed it.
