Check your file associations.

Launch Control Panel (WINkey+R, type CONTROL and press enter).

Change View byto Small Icons.

Click Default Programs.

Click Associate a file type or protocol with a program.

Scroll down to JPG and ensure that it's associated to a program. If not, change it to a valid program.
