    File Thumbnails & Tags Not Showing in Explorer


    Hi,
    I know there are some threads about this. but I couldn't solve my problem using those. so I decided to make a new thread instead of bumping the old ones.
    Well, Here is my problem:
    recently I installed a fresh copy of windows 8 on my PC. it was nothing wrong with it till I installed Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 (v. 10.1.0.867) & did a reboot.
    Now non of my files including picture, audio & video files show thumbnails or even tags (ex mp3 files).
    I've tried the solutions stated about turning thumbnails on & off with no luck. in my folder options the option "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is UNCHECKED.

    Has anybody faced the problem?? Is the issue from Kaspersky?? Are there any workarounds??

    I truly Appreciate any help.

    PS. I also have some difficulties pinning folders to windows explorer taskbar icon since then.

    How about trying to do a system restore?

    Thanks for replies,
    In fact, now I'm almost sure Kaspersky is the problem. but I don't want to uninstall it. coz I bought license from them.
    I was wondering, Is there any way to fix that without uninstalling Kaspersky??

    Already tried, "show thumbnails instead of icons" is already checked.
