Windows Photo Viewer Stretches my pictures

When I open certain pictures in windows photo viewer it stretches them so much they are unviewable. Here is a screenshot:


The pictures are fine when you see them as thumbnails, and are fine if i view them in a web browser, but windows photo viewer always does that to them. They are only jpeg image files, so i really dont understand whats going on. Any thoughts much appreciated!


Open the file in Paint.

Save it as a PNG file and your good to go.
