I have experienced this issue both in Win7 and Vista with Odd images, (this actually relates to explorer rather than Photo viewers), but the issue may be similar.

In my case it was due to a corruption in the Horizontal and Vertical DPI resolution of the images - If you open the image in Irfanview ( IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide ), the Info option provides an editable entry for the DPI setting - make sure that these settings are equal, (eg. 100x100, 50x50), and they should then display correctly.

Always do this on a copy of the image just in case
