Photos are corrupted in Windows 7 Ultimate only. I have tried: different memory cards, reformatted memory card, tried a different camera, different monitor, loaded the SAME photos from the memory card to Windows XP AND Windows 7 HP and the photos are fine. I have also tried viewing the photos in different photo viewing software on W7U with the same result.
Not all of the photos are corrupted. And the ones that are, are just fine on other computers. Short of reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate I cannot seem to find a reason.
The photos are "cut in half" horizontally with the two halves being out of alignment AND the color on the top half is slightly lighter and less vivid than the bottom half. Sometimes one half of the photo is just light gray with no image or color at all.
