When I click on a JPEG or other graphic image it opens up Paint Shop Pro, how do I stop that

Some people, after installing Paint Shop Pro, do not want their files
associated to Paint Shop Pro. Sometimes they want Paint Shop Pro uninstalled
and the file associations removed (as in a case of an expired evaluation
version). Below you will find the steps for both methods.

Below you will find the steps for both methods.

If you still have and want Paint Shop Pro installed but want to remove the
file associations from certain or all image file formats present on your
computer do the following.

1. Choose File > Preferences > File Associations
2.Click Remove All
3. It will ask if you are sure, select YES.

If you want to remove PaintShop Pro and the file associations simply
uninstall PaintShop Pro usingthe following steps.

1. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel
2. Double click Add/Remove Programs
3. Click the Install/Uninstall tab
4. Double click Paint Shop Pro 7 and choose the Automatic uninstall
5. When it asks you if you would like to remove the File Associations, click
Yes.

Pro, Windows will tell you it's an unknown file type and an "Open With..."
Window will open. Windows will ask you which application you would like to
associate with it.

To choose one:

1. Scroll through the list in the Open With dialog until you find the
program you would like to use to open that file type.
2. Click the program name and mark the Always Use this Program to Open This
type of File box
3. Click OK.
