If you want to view photos in Windows XP, your best bet is to use the "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" that comes installed by default. If you have not installed any other image editing software, you can run the Picture and Fax viewer by simply double-clicking any picture file on your hard drive. However, if you'd like to use the now outdated Microsoft Photo Editor, you'll have to download the software (for free) from the Internet.
