can't see pictures

I’ve yet to experience this error yet, but for some reason when trying to open a jpg file or a bmp file I get the error on the picture that’s included. I can open the file by right clicking and choosing open with using paint, but just double clicking the file gives me the error on the picture included.error when double clicking pictureshows apps set as default.
Somehow the picture view is TWINUI, but what seems to be the problem is when I change the default apps settings from TWINUI to paint the screen goes away. Because the screen goes away the settings never stays as paint for the picture viewer, and TWINUI remains the default for pictures. TWINUI is also the default video player for some reason; included a picture.

I tried copying and pasting the below into power shell but didn’t work.
Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode - Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


get-appxpackage *Microsoft.Windows.Photos* | remove-appxpackage

If I log in as me on the PC with my active directory admin account I can successfully change the photo viewer, but I do not believe this applies to a group policy considering how long this problem has never happened before.

Is there a way to remove the TWINUI picture viewer? I do not see it listed in the add/remove programs, or listed as a feature to add or remove.

Maybe TWINUI picture viewer comes with an update?

This is on Windows 10 1809 Enterprise.

I install a Panasonic scanner, but I support somewhere in the 20s Panasonic scanners at work and this is the first time I’ve ran into this. Don’t think installing a scanner would have anything to do with this?

It’d be great if there’s a way to just remove TWINUI.

Can you reassign the default app back to MSPaint, old school style, right-click and selecting open-with and always open with app?

I should have thought of that but it worked, and I also did the same for movie files; how TWINUI got sat as the movie player I have no idea.

At this time, it seems I’ll have to do that for every type of picture; no way to put paint as the %100 picture viewer for some reason.

I’ve been supporting Windows 10 for a while, and I may have missed this in the past, but I do not ever remember TWINUI. Maybe this is something new?

Not sure if this had anything to do with the picture deal, but surfing over the internet using system file checker may help.

I ran sfc and errors were found and supposedly fixed; something about corrupt. I attached the CBS.log.

How or what happened to get messed up for SFC to find errors, don’t know?
