This is fault in windows live photo gallery for which Microsoft is responsible, nothing wrong with your computer. See whether you can open a image using windows live photo gallery anywhere other than the start menu. Unless Microsoft resolves the error with an update you have to open images from the explorer.

So make sure you get the updates now if it is available or download it as soon as it is available. If you have Automatic updates on windows will automatically download and install updates when you are shutting down. To turn on Automatic Updates on go to Start>Control Panel> Automatic Updates. Click on the circle next to Automatic and select ok
