    Default Windows picture and fax viewer

    Here`s an annoying problem i have after just doing a complete reformat,reinstallation on win xp professional. SP2 installed also.
    when i try to click on any picture to launch with windows picture & fax viewer
    it does absolutely nothing.Also there is no preview pic on the left bottom under details (though there is a preview of non pics i.e. movies,vids etc).
    the windows picture & fax viewer is set as my default viewer for those file types.Also it does not launch if i right click & open with then choose windows picture & fax viewer.

    OK i here you say "use a third party viewer" no big deal.Yes i can do & actually do have now but i do miss those preview details & apart from that IT`S ANNOYING MY HEAD IN!
    any thoughts people?
