You can easily resolve your trouble Right-click on one of the pictures and after that click “Open with”. After that choose Windows Live Photo Gallery from the catalog, confirm the option “Always make use of the selected program to open this kind of file”. If still the photo is not opened then please let me know the following:
1. The format of the photos.
2. Where do they come from?
3. Whether they can be opened within Windows Photo Gallery inside Windows Vista.

This appear to be an problem by means of several corrupt system file. At the moment I would recommend you on the way to follow the steps as well as link below to carry out a System File Checker (SFC) scan as well as that be supposed to most likely take care of the problem.
1. Go to start and click ALL PROGRAMS/ Accessories now right-click Command Prompt, as well as after that click run as administrator.
2. You might be prompted for an administrator password, type the password, or else click continue.
3. Type : sfc/scannow as well as press ENTER.
This command scans each and every one protected system files as well as restores inaccurate versions by means of right Microsoft versions.

I ran the scan (sfc/scannow) as suggested. No concern was noted by means of the scan. On the other hand, my situation was not resolved. I restarted just on the way to be in no doubt. Not fixed. After that I restored an older edition of my photos from my internet storage account. That did not resolve the problem either.If you have any other suggestion please let me know.
