The easiest way is to find a picture file (myphoto.jpg as example) and
right-click it. Choose Open With. You should see a choice for Windows
Picture & Fax Viewer. Choose it and also check the box that says to
always use this program. You might also need to open the Roxio program
and in its options uncheck anything that says it is the default program
to open picture files. Otherwise it might hijack your associations
again the next time you use it.
