    Thumbnails Won't Show


    Hello, I have a problem here, in the last two days, I can't see any preview of my pictures (not only pictures, but videos too). I really need a help. I've tried cleaning the old thumbnails using Disk Cleanup, but no work. Trying to untick the "Always show icon, not thumnail" in Folder Options, don't work too. Here is the screenshot:

    So, anyone can help me with this problem?

    Thanks before.

    Sorry, but I've tried everything in Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Help Forums, but still no luck. Any other way to fix this?

    Thanks before.

    Rebuild the Icon Cache may help, Open File Explorer > Folder Options > Views to show Hidden System Files. Next, go to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local folder and delete the hidden IconCache.db file. Reboot. This action will purge and rebuild the icon cache.

    I've tried that too, and still no luck. Any other way to fix this again?

    I'm not doing anything to my computer in the last two days, so, why this can be happen? Or maybe it is because I've a low disk space? Oh yeah, I've tried using the system restore too, but it doesn't resolve my problem.

    Thanks before.

    Have you tried sfc /scannow in command prompt as administrator.

    The result is looks like this:

    "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are ..."

    I've tried that 4 times, but the results are same. So, what should I do to fix this?

    Thanks before.

    Edit: I'm on my way trying to use the "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth" command.
