    I tried XNView and it does not work with it either.

    I would try copying an image from your wife's machine onto a usb and see if it opens ok on your machine. If so then copy it to the HD on your machine and see if it "stays good" for a few hours/days. If at a loss the best general technique is divide and conquer. Try tests that determine which side the problem is on be it hardware/software data/executable if software etc..

    Process of elimination may take awhile but unless you have a good clue to the cause it may be the only way to go.
    I tried to open one of the images on another computer. Same problem, so I'm guessing it must be something my computer is doing to the image to corrupt it?

    That is why I suggested copying a file from another source to a USB stick and opening it on your PC. If it opens ok then copy it to the HD and see how it opens from there. If it opens from the HD ok try it again after a day and see if it is still ok. The point being to see where the file is getting munged, if that is what is happening.

    The particular steps aren't important. It's just to try to eliminate 1/2 the possibilities on each experiment.
