    Thumbnails change looks when loading

    When I have Explorer open and click on a folder with all images, then click on extra large icons the images show looking normal but then they refresh and look flat. This is a new system and never saw this in Windows 7.

Are you losing thumbnails often? Here is the fix...
I dunno why Windows 7 and now 8 always want to delete thumbnail caches at random and often. I have had this problem since the first leak of 7. For some, the problem may be the Disc Cleanup utility or CCleaner. Mine are set NOT to delete caches but yet I still suffer. Here is the fix that...
