Right click on the file with the Shift key held down and select Open With.  Then browse to whatever you use to open .jpg files (Paint Shop Pro, MS Paint, etc).

It may recreate a file association for it.

You can also create a file association by going into explorer>Tools>Folder Options>File Types and add JPG in there.

You could also try removing MSPaint from the Windows components in Add/Remove Programs and then adding it again.
