First of all please make sure, that you have not changed the file name into any incorrect way, accidently. This is saved including .bmp extension. 

Try to check about any recent installation of any application which may be effecting to the existing window tools (including paint).

You may go for setting default program used for a particular file.:

  • Goto START << DEFAULT PROGRAM<<Associate a File or Protocol with a Program.
  • Select .bmp file.
  • Look for the associated Default Program
  • Click to "Change Program" and choose "Paint"from the options available.

Hope this will resolve your trouble.
