I had no problem with that image displaying in IrfanView, GIMP or 
Windows Picture Viewer.

I suspect it may not be a problem with the image itself. What is the 
associated program that File Manager is trying to open it with? Is the 
file already open? Is it read-only? Are you able to copy the image to a 
directory other than "C:\Documents and Settings\Ábel\My Documents\My 
Pictures\2009-04-25\Esküvo\" and open it from there?
