How to trap an ExternalException error

P: n/a
How can I trap a System.Runtime.InteropServices.ExternalException error? I am working with graphics and sometimes the graphics are corrupt and I end up getting:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.ExcternalException ' occurred in system.windows.forms.dll.

Additional Information: A generic error occurred in GDI+.
I have a Try..Catch ex as Exception...End Try code wrapping the lines where the Picturebox.Image is set, but it won't catch it. I have included a Thread.GetDomain().UnhandledException handler, but the error pops up first, and THEN executes the unhandledexception handler, which is no good.

I tried to Catch ex as SystemException, or as the externalexception, but cannot find a working solution.
