problem downloading jpegs

I'm having a problem with jpeg files after they've been downloaded.  It just started the other day.  I can download the file, but I can't view it in ulead.  I click on the properties and it doesn't seem to recognize it as a jpeg.  This happens with any picture I try to download and I tried to download a picture I've already got and the same thing happened.

Anybody know what the problem is?
1 Solution
In the explorer. Choose folder options. Choose file types.
Choose Jpeg image. Set the application to Ulead or something else.

an easier way might be to hold down the left shift key while you right-click on the file.  Then choose "open with" and tell it which program to open it with, and select "always use this program ... blah blah"

It's an actual problem with the file.  If I have ulead open and I'm on the main page where all the pictures are displayed, they all appear except the ones I've tried to download in the past couple of days.  The file is there with the rest of the pictures, but when I click it to enlarge it, it gives me a message saying "There is no application associated with the given file name extension"

Like I said, these files are perfectly normal as I tried a picture that I had already downloaded.  It just doesn't seem to recognize it as a jpeg file.

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

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.

Have you ever had Ulead read JPEG files? If you have not, make sure Ulead is associated with JPG and JPEG files. Use either guidway or AlbertaBeef's method to make the association.

If you have successfully view JPEG files with Ulead, try another viewer. You use either guidway or AlbertaBeef's method and select Internet Explorer program to view. If another viewer is able to view the JPEG file, then there is something wrong with Ulead.  Uninstall and reinstall Ulead program.
Maybe the actual files you are downloading is corupted.
Could you give us a link to the files you were downloading?
