I don't know how to fix this. I can open files with ColorSync Utility.app, but for some reason the default viewer (for jpgs, etc) Preview.app is broken. I didn't install or do anything to my system. Any solutions to this?

I once had a problem with Preview in 10.4.x and I deleted and reinstalled it since I could not figure it out. Did you try this?

For whatever reason, your Preview application bundle appears to be broken.

Try repairing permissions.

Failing that, use Pacifist to reinstall Preview from your installation DVD, then download and run the combo updater to the latest OS update.
