Windows 7: Photos turn all black in windows explorer and windows photo gallery

15 Jun 2015   #11

Windows 7 64 bit

Hi there, Good day to you.

I have joined forum because after several months, I came across this thread to which I am responding. I attach some interesting photos. When I view photos in Explorer as "Large Icons", or "Extra Large Icons". the thumb nails change colour right in front of me. It is dramatic. If I click on a photo to see in full screen, the enlarged size is also corrupted. There is more. If I go back to the original folder, the corruption is permanent in the folder. Not all photos get corrupted. Not all photos get "attacked" by the same colour.

Photos on the SD Card in the Camera are perfect.

I have used Kaspersky paid version, Avast free version, Windows scanner (Microsoft Safety Scanner - Free Virus Scan with the Microsoft Safety Scanner), Norton, Bidefender on line virus checkers. There is no virus.

If I load the photos form the SD Card again, different photos get corrupted.

I have updated drivers. Made no difference.

This started happening in the last 6 months. Nothing changed. I am unable to create travel videos.

I have changed disk and installed earlier version of Acronis image.

I have transferred some photos to DVDs. The images are safe on the DVD. Photos do not get "attacked" on the DVD.

I have not found anything remotely similar (yet) in the camera forums. I am hoping there is some experience in the Forum community.
