You've already confirmed, more or less, regardless of machine, OS, software and location of the select files, the files are corrupted. Unless you know how to dig into the headers and figure out where the fault lies, the select files will remain faulty.

thumbnails are cached in different file so may not represent true state of the picture.

I had problems with some of my pictures being vertically compressed when I switched from XP to Win 7. I changed the default picture viewer from Win 7's to the one that comes with Office 2007 Home and Student. Problem solved.
