Had no idea where to post this at, but here goes. Problem:
For some reason when trying to view my pictures under or by viewing thru the library, showed up no viewable contents or folders. Tho the library showed 2 locations. I double checked the index locations, everything ok, even right clicked in the blank space of the library folder, properties, and it showed that i had 181mb of stuff there, but invisible. I have done nothing special, no new app installs, no customization, change in folder view or type, not even left the HG... the only things i have done is surf and scan 3 pics with my scanner that i already had the manufacturer's software installed long ago. Scan went fine, saved to my pictures folder, and thus after saving i went to view and the story goes...
again, why this happened i have no clue The "fix":
what i found to finally make the icons to show up was under the my pictures library properties
window. The one that just displays one tab and shows the included locations etc. Where it says "optomize this Library for", initially it had "Pictures" (as well it should be, but this was the problem), change this to general items, and voila.
was a nag/scare for a few mins for me, and a reboot didnt fix.... so just incase this happens to you, dont panic, lol
 also to state, of course, by navigating thru C:\users\username\my pictures, the files promptly showed, this was only when trying to view thru library.
