If you have recently installed some new Image viewing software on your PC and set the associations to the new program then the icons will of changed...

You may wan't to slow down you're assumptions. :) While I don't think there are any doubts what you saw it doesn't sound like a virus. As Shoon81 said it's probably just some imaging software that associates itself with certain file types .gif, .jpg, .png, etc. Uninstall the software or reinstall it, and specify which filetypes to associate itself with if any if this is possible. 8-)
