    I had this problem too and it was caused by a virus. Wish kept a record of which one. Cleaned up system and all was good.

    It may be a bug in Internet Explorer. It seems to happen when the temporary Internet files folder is full. Try deleting the temporary Internet files and download the pictures again.
