outlook won't open jpg files. says application not found

Recently, my outlook stopped being able to open jpg files. when I try to open
any picture attachments, the error message states that the "application not
found." for opening the file. What is the file opening application and how do
I get it back/reinstall it? Thanks.

[Honestly, I didn't think OP would ever see my reply so I didn't bother.

I had the same problem and with TXT files.
To solve this go to Control panel - tools - folder options - file types.
Choose the file type i.e.Jpeg and a program to open it, i.e. MS picture viewer
The file can now be opened.
