pictures are piece of paper with a paint pallette

I am trying to sell stuff on Craigslist and when I went to my pictures to post one they are all pieces of paper
with a folded over right corner with a paint pallette in the center. I also have some folders that when I click
on them to see photos,individule papers not photos appear.Have NO clue as to what happened, but really
need some help.ANY suggestions would be much appreciated. I have tried system restore,but it does not go
back far enough. Checked show hidden files.No good.Show previous versions. No good.
