Repairing the problem, or file (if possible) is key.

What file format is the current file in?   .jpg?  .bmp? .png  etc.

Can you try moving the problem file to a different location?
i.e. to a USB stick or another computer.

Does the problem still exist if you do this?

Did you try renaming the file?

Can you rename the file extension to something different and see if the problem still exists?

If under Win 7,  can you right click the file and select "restore previous version", and go back to an older version?

At the end of the day, there are various disk repair utilities that might correct the problem, if the problem was originally caused by a hard disk failure, but you're limited on the file level.
