Windows 7: Invisible and Blank Thumbnails/Icons?

Invisible and Blank Thumbnails/Icons?

I'm not quite sure how this keeps happening, something to do with explorer.exe I presume. But my icons keep going invisible and some just go blank, as in just white. Example below:

Also my favourite links when I open up explorer.exe are gone, just seems to be constantly trying to load but never completes

Apologies, I assumed the code for the picture was a clickable thumbnail.

have you tried running system file checker?

open an elevated command prompt and type 'sfc /SCANNOW' and hit enter.

File checker brings up nothing wrong and already tried the thumbnail cache. It happens after the computer has been on a while, a reboot will fix it but I really can't be bothered with that any more. It's more annoying that anything really.

RC/7100 Build, upgraded from Vista Ultimate. Perhaps that's the problem, the upgrade?
