files don’t open after photoshop starts

I have Photoshop 7 running on a Windows 2000 system. When I double click on an icon in a directory, ONLY if the file is a .PSD file will Photoshop start and open the image. If it is .TIFF, .JPEG etc. Photoshop starts but the image doesn’t open (I then have to go through the file>open> business to see my image). This was not the case in Photoshop 6. I have tried reinstalling the application but still get the same behavior. Is there some option I need to set to get Photoshop to acutally open non .PSD images automatically?

Note: Windows 2000 (all patches) fast Athlon CPU, 1.25 GB memory, lots of disk.
