Windows 7: Windows Explorer: Thumbnail OK + Icon Error

Windows Explorer: Thumbnail OK + Icon Error

Got this weird error & dunno how to fix it: I want & can see the thumbnails in Explorer but there is also an icon with the same name as the main file. The size is much smaller & when clicking on it, I get the error as you can see below. Also, if I click on a thumbnail & see the image in Windows Photo Viewer, if I click Next, it will show the error of the next icon file. Thanks for your help.

Found a solution as this happened in only 1 folder: in Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > View > Show Hidden Files, then select List or Details view but NOT icons > search for thumbs.db & delete all that are deletable. Eh voila.

Applied this tutorial & love the look w/o borders & the larger previews. Thanks for that Brink: How to Change the Thumbnail Previews Border in Windows 7.
