See if the file can be opened in Adobe / gimp / Photo-Paint for editing.  If it can, there may be an issue with the encoding.  TIFF supports many different file encodings and it's possible that some of the more unusual ones are not supported by Windows.

PNG is probably a better choice for many applications.
