  1. .jpeg images won't open, strange icon


    Hey everyone,

    So I recently tried to open a .jpeg image that I downloaded from google images to make it my computer wallpaper. But for some strange reason, the icon for it is just a blank icon with a couple of cogs on it. Whenever I try to open the file, it immediately deletes the window, and whenever I try to open it as an administrator, the window that pops up is just an image a bunch of code. I'm having a lot of trouble finding out what this means, I've been scanning the internet for the better part of an hour trying to figure this thing out. If anyone has a solution, or can put me in the right direction for finding a solution, it'd be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Canon

    :)

    Picture keeps showing up as wallpaper

    I don't recall if there are any file types that won't work as desktop images... if it's a jpeg then it should be OK... Try opening it in the paint program and re-saving it as a jpeg (using 'save as' command) if you are not sure, but it uploaded to this
    site OK,.. Otherwise I'd be more inclined to suspect some hi-jack malware associated with the problem image.

    Unable to open jpeg file error - "class not registered".

    A bit more info about my problem. Any jpeg when I try double click won't open just shows " invalid value for registry" if I right click on the jpeg and select open with, it will open with windows photo viewer, but not with photos. The photos icon is very
    faint.

    When I click in the bottom left hand corner of my pc the tiles come up, but the one titled photos shows changing pictures, but can not be opened.

    What is your default program you use to open .jpeg images?

    It appears to me the downloaded image is broken/corrupted, probably need to download it again.

    Hi CanonCalculator, Welcome to 10F! *Smile

    The cogs and that behaviour sounds like a system32 file and kind of proves it when opened it looks like a "bunch of code".

    I hope its not malware *Sad
    Did you get any flags from your anti-virus when you downloaded it? You can still scan it or if you want to, go here: VirusTotal online scanner to scan the file to check it out

  7. I did that, but it still stayed the same.

    I'm pretty sure its the default Windows 10 one, I'm just forgetting the name.

  9. I didn't get any flags, and I even scanned it with my anti-virus software and found nothing on it. Curious, I decided to download another image, and the exact same thing happened. It's happened with all of the photos I've downloaded today, no matter what quality or size they are. I'm really stumped with this.

  10. How are you downloading these images? Try to Right Click on one and use Save as.
