Images open as narrow strip

Possibly an easy question but I can't find an answer.

I have some images saved from the web. When opening them in Windows Picture Viewer, they show as a narrow ribbon across the screen about an inch wide. If I run them as a slide show they open normally. The open normally in Explorer, Paint, Picasa and other programmes. The information in Properties shows the same as images that open normally. This hasn't happened with any of my own images but I have at least two sets of rogue pics from 2 different sites. Other pics from the same sites have been fine. All looked "normal" before saving.
I'm using Win 7 Home 64bit. Any ideas? Please.
