The files I'm having trouble with seem to be JPG.  As an example C:\Programfiles\Netmeeting\ReceivedFiles\Rachel1.jpg is not a valid Win 32 application.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

 
MrbreezeCommented:
Try this
1)Highlight the file
2)Hold down the shift key and right click the file
3)When the box opens choose the option Open With and click it
4)When the next box comes up scroll down the list to iexplorer and highlight it and then click ok
5)There is a box on that window that says Always use this program..etc. If you check that box it will always use the program you chose. If you don't check it it will only open the one file one time.
6)You can repeat the process and assign the graphics program of your choice to it. Just to remember to check the box when you settle on the program to use.

Hope that helps and let us know
