Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (.exe?)

What's the executeable name for the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer?

I want to set the default for my images. When I right click on image and go to 'Open with' I don't see it.
It's there for XP, but not Vista.
I also tried opening an image in XP and looked at Windows Task Manger, but unable to determine executable name.

TIA!

It is not an exe, but the "Application used to perform this action:" in Windows XP for images is:

rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen %1

allanau20--Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is no longer is available in Vista.  It has been replaced by Windows Photo Gallery.

I agree that other image viewers are much better.  I personally use Irfanview most of the time.  www.irfanview.com

allanau20--I should have added that you probably will find Windows Photo Gallery in the Open With list on the Vista PC.
