1. Can you get your friend to resend you the pics?
If so, delete the ones you already have, and see if you can duplicate the problem (after the others arrive).
2. Also, did you save your pics in the default My Pictures folder?
I'm asking these questions because it helps me troubleshoot problems easily without having to advise you to have to install more software/crap on your computer. That's the last thing you need right now.
Another fix to that problem that i've noticed at times is to simply hit refresh/reload. I've been to web sites that do the same exact thing. When the picture freezes up half-way through loading, hit the refresh/reload. That may load it all the way up.
If that doesn't work, then from the time you've seen them, to the time you've saved them, they've gotten corrupted during the transfer/download. That happens too.
3. Have you tried opening up the pics in another program, like Paint, Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, etc? Try any imaging program you may have, and see what happens, then post back here.
