JPEG icon changes when file burned to CD

Last Modified: 2013-11-17
The user has a Win XP SP-2 Dell laptop. When he burns .jpg's to a CD, each file on the finished CD has an icon that seems to be the Windows Picture & Fax Viewer icon with the IE-7 icon superimposed over it. Windows Picture & Fax Viewer is the default application for all the flavors of .jpg files. Two separate CDs were burned; one with Nero and the other with the Win XP CD burning utility. Both displayed the same weird icon. The 'normal' icon is displayed when I place one of the CDs in my PC.

It's some setting on his PC, but I can't figure out where it's at. Any ideas?
