Corrupt picture library

My picture library has became corrupt. I recently set up WMC and imported my photos and installed Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements 11. I did a system restore to prior to the Elements 11 install without a fix. Any help would be appreciated.

Wait so those pictures arent intentional? (Just kidding) ok maybe somsthing got mixed up. First, try this:
Disk Check

Ok. Do you have any restore points? Try System Restore Try to restore to a point before the problem.

Are they corrupted photos that are showing icons? Or are they different files that are not photos? (Like the one with the gear picture)

Most are different files that aren't pictures. I don't know how but when I imported pics to WMC it imported photos from my I phone too. What a mess.

Did the files keep the name of the old photos?

And that is why you always need a backup of your photos on a seperate drive.
